Medieval vanishing point

In the medieval streets of the French town of Perigueux, this old-style drainage system disappears up the hill.

Thursday Doors: Tranquility Base again

We have just rented this little house, no more than 50 yards from our own front door here in Tranquility Base, for my mother. It’s very bijou.

This gave us access to some previously unseen doors of a barn which belongs to another of our neighbours:

Scenes from the crypt

For this week’s theme of ‘Murals’, some very old artwork on the walls of the crypt of the church in the village of Gargilesse, in central France.

Thursday Doors: Beverley Revisited

Apologies for the recent hiatus in door posts, but the fact of the matter is that I had just run out of doors worthy of your consideration and so far this year have had neither the opportunity nor the suitable weather to find any new ones.

However, we recently visited our daughter and family who live near the town of Beverley in East Yorkshire and I managed to capture with my iPhone these few examples of the typical Georgian style. They’re rather better looked after than those I tend to put up here, but interesting nonetheless.

I’ll be back when I’ve got some more to share.

Note the decorative pair of wellington boots next to this door:

Round Patterns

This image is multi-tasking as my entry this week for both Frank’s Tuesday Photo Challenge with the theme of ‘Round’ and Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, where the subject is “Patterns‘.

It is a photograph of one of the magnificent crystal chandeliers in the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, captured by setting my camera’s auto-timer and laying it on the floor of the prayer hall, pointing up at the ceiling.
