Thursday Doors: Asnieres-sur-Blour

The village of Asnières-sur-Blour is yet another of those little rural communities that can be found within a fifteen-minute drive of Tranquility Base.

I was there last week, primarily to take photographs of old tractors (you can only envy me) for a project I’m working on currently. However, as so often happens, the doors proved a lot more interesting than the agricultural machinery, as we’ll see here over the next couple of weeks.

Just to confirm where we are:

Doors like these – on buildings used to accommodate farm animals – are a common local feature and similar ones have appeared here before:

Just across the road from those old things is a new house (well, the cladding at least is new) but with this older door in it:

It’s not always possible to get up close and personal with the doors you might want to capture for posterity, so finally for this week here are a couple of images snatched through a fence:

  1. Wow! I’m so envious of your visit here and I love those rugged timber doors down the bottom of the house for the animals. Back in 1992, I went to this region they call the THree Corners between Switzerland, Germany and France and I remember going to the ruins of a castle that looked like the one in your photo. I need to do a bit of digging but it might be Rotteln Castle in Lorrach.
    This week’s series of doors, is reminding me to label my photos from that trip. I also wish I could retrace nmy steps with my digital camera and my much improved photographic skills. Meanwhile, I’m happy photographing things here in Australia. There’s plenty of inspiration here.
    Best wishes,
    Rowena
