Thursday Doors: Cahors (1)

A recent coach trip down south to the Lot region of France included visits to two door-worthy locations and plenty of material to fill posts for the next few weeks.

To begin with, we look at the town of Cahors. Most of this was seen from a little tourist train, driven by a man who seemed to be in a tearing hurry. This means that some of these images are not up to normal standards of composition and sharpness, but these doors are nonetheless worth seeing.

I don’t know what’s behind this door – and I can only conclude that somebody definitely doesn’t want me to:

  1. That first one is definitely a keep-out kinda door. I have to say that I love the motion blur in the second shot. It really enhances the shot.
    Nice finds πŸ™‚

  2. these are absolutely worth seeing and I feel the better for being here – wow – culture rich and the driver must have been in a hurry – lol
    I love so many details – but the opening pic is a fav of this post and one of my top door pics of the year
