The artist who produced this graffito, on the outskirts of Nantes, is obviously committed to the cause, given that whoever it was had to scale a wall to get up onto the roof of a shop.

Monday Window: Noirlac

The restored Abbaye de Noirlac includes a number of bedrooms furnished in the appropriate style. With the bed being off to the left, behind the curtain, you could probably describe this particular example in hotel terms as a ‘junior suite’.

52 Week Smartphone Challenge: 22 Stranger

I thought that this rather mysterious painted shopfront in the nearby town of Bellac was suitable for the theme of ‘Stranger’ in Week 22 of the 52 Week Smartphone Challenge.
