Turning Stones To Bread

The theme for the Fun Foto Challenge this week is ‘We Are The World’, which – at least in this blogger’s personal opinion – is a cloying, cliché-ridden dirge produced (or should that be ‘perpetrated’?) by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie, who really could – and should – have done better. Or just not bothered.

But I digress. I have no image to go with this title. However, in part the lyrics read “turning stones to bread”.

Stones have an integral role to play in the making of bread, from the millstones that grind the wheat to the bricks that make up the ovens that bake the loaves.

That gave me the inspiration to post this image of the interior of a very large communal bread oven, in the open-air museum of Montrol-Sènard. The ceiling is quite a triumph of the bricklayers’ art.
