The theme for the Fun Foto Challenge this week is something that reminds us of nature’s beauty.
I seem to recall from my distant days as a Philosophy undergraduate that there is quite some debate as to whether ‘beauty’ exists anywhere other than the eye of the beholder.

It must be said that the monochrome version of this image of a huge pile of hay bales covered in black plastic does have a lot more impact than the colour original.

This abandoned building in the centre of the city of Cahors isn’t old enough to benefit from the preservation efforts that go into maintaining the medieval part, but is no longer modern enough to have any practical use.
