Tuesday Photo Challenge: Fantasy

Frank’s theme for this week is ‘fantasy’. I suppose one way of defining that is as something that doesn’t actually exist but you would quite like it if it did.

The possibilities are almost endless, but on a very still day on the River Charente in the Dordogne there’s more than a suggestion of fantasy about the reflections of the riverbank.

Monday Window: Unoccupied building, Chabanais

This window above the abandoned premises of a video hire shop (remember them?) in the town of Chabanais is lifted out of the ordinary by the eerie presence of an old lace curtain.

L is for Logs

If you have a wood-burning stove, then it’s getting to that time of year:

Thursday Doors: Chabanais – Double doors: and more

This week’s instalment of the doors of Chabanais has something of a theme in that it features exclusively double, or even multiple, doors.

Even something as prosaic as a garage can be accessorised with some curtains:

Or even some ornate decoration on the roofline:

Garages aren’t necessarily for just one vehicle, however:

Follow the signs for the public conveniences, though, and you’ll be in for a disappointment:

Finally, an old workshop:

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Slope

Let’s play a word association game. Last week, Frank’s theme for his Tuesday Photo Challenge was ‘steep’. What else could it be this time but ‘slope’?

The almost impossibly picturesque village of Saint Cirq Lapopie clings to a hillside near the town of Cahors, in southern France. There isn’t a level (or particularly wide) street in the place, so lots of slopes. This is probably one of the more challenging ones.

Monday Window: The Grand Mosque, Muscat

The Grand Mosque in Muscat, the capital of the Sultanate of Oman, features many stained glass windows. In accordance with Islamic tradition, images are geometrical and abstract rather than featuring depictions of the human form.
