Thursday Doors: St-Germain-de-Confolens – the sunny side of the street

More from St-Germain-de-Confolens this week. I should explain that the village’s main (effectively only) street runs more or less north to south alongside the Charente river. In practical terms that means that on sunny afternoons the shadows can be quite harsh. However, I think the doors are still worth looking at.

This door’s obviously still in use:

Unlike this one, opposite, of a closed-down restaurant…

St Germain-10

…which echoes the colours of the building that houses the Post Office. The modern door doesn’t have a lot to say for itself, but I like the strong geometric shape of the security grilles:

St Germain-4

Finally, my favourite of this week’s bunch – gloriously decrepit, with the finishing touch of a rose growing next to it:

St Germain-13

  1. This is such a great weekly challenge isn’t it- I love seeing doors of the world, this French village has some unique ones,I particularly like the heavy studded ones and the funky entry to the the terrasse, actually I particularly like all of them!

  2. Harsh shadows can make for some great dramatic shots and these ones do not disappoint. What a lovely village. Thanks for sharing these 🙂
