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:
The quick passing glimpse of this door was enough to see that its carving was particularly ornate…but then it was gone:
As was this – less elaborate, but obviously with a story to tell:
Fortunately the train did slow down occasionally, which allowed me to grab a couple of more stable shots:
Finally, a left turn into traffic allowed me to get a reasonable shot of this set of gates:

All doors worthy to see! But am also curious what’s behind them:)
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 🙂
Thanks Norm. The motion blur did turn out to be a happy accident, although it all felt a bit frustrating at the time.
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
Thank you. It IS quite a door.
