Thursday Doors: Still Perigueux

The gift that keeps on giving – another selection of doors from the recently discovered cache of photographs I took in the town of Perigueux last year.

It seems to be a quite popular thing to have doors made of asymmetric lengths of wood, which must be an OCD nightmare:

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Key

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Lock

This stall in the stables at Chateau de la Riviere, near Pompadour, was empty when I took this photograph. Was it a case of closing the stable door after the horse had bolted?
