About a year ago, I put up a couple of posts featuring doors to be found in our local village of Mézières-sur-Issoire. Those photographs were taken on the day of the annual ‘Expo’ of hobbies and ‘Passions’ (steady on) organised by a local cultural society. Madame was wowing everyone with her quilts in the salle de polyvalente so I went walkabout for a doorscursion.
The 2017 edition of the Expo was held last month. Madame did her wowing again and although I did exhibit some of my photographs they didn’t attract so much interest as to keep me detained
– so I took off for some further door-based exploration, with the results that will appear here over the next few weeks.
Even its most ardent advocates would not argue that Mézières is an ancient or particularly scenic place, so while its doors may lack the antique charm of some that have been posted here, they’re modest and unassuming and nothing if not honest.
I’ve often wondered what lay along the road called Chemin des Vignes that runs off from the square in front of the church. Well now we know:
Take another road less-travelled that runs from the opposite corner of the same square and there’s this:
Back in what you could call the town centre, there’s another example of a closed down commercial premises, to go with the ones I featured in the post ‘A Vendre’. This one was trying to flog electric heating – an uphill task when wood-burning systems are still the norm:
Finally for this week, a well-worn set of garden/garage doors:
Thursday Doors 16 November 2017
Love the shadows of the tree branches on the walls! Although the last door somehow draw me in:) Nice to have the Expo to show your photography!
Thank you. I wasn’t too sure about the shadows, but I couldn’t do anything about them anyway. As to the Expo, it was quite odd to see my photos on something other than a computer screen.
The shots with the shadows on the wall, blue door with the brick surround, is an amazing image.
It seems like a truly unique place to hunt for doors 🙂
Thanks, Norm – but it’s by no means unique. You just need to keep your eyes open – and be driven by fear of the approaching deadline of next Thursday.

“Nothing if not honest.” I love that most of all.
