We’ve just spent a few days in and around the – very picturesque – medieval town of Sarlat, in the Dordogne.
This photograph was taken from the ascenseur panoramique – a glass-walled lift (elevator, if you insist) that climbs 100 feet inside the bell-tower of a church. From the top you get excellent – nay, panoramique – views of the rooftops of old Sarlat and the surrounding countryside…
…as well as these happy snappers reviewing their images of the bronze geese in the Place du Marché aux Oies – the Goose Market.

This is a photograph of the back of my watch. Except that it isn’t really my watch. It’s the one that was presented to my grandfather on the occasion of his retirement in 1961 – at the age of 74. Those are his initials: TC.
Rather like me, it’s a bit temperamental now, and sometimes stops for no obvious reason (also rather like me). But I’m proud to wear it.

The BurJuman Centre is one of the oldest shopping malls in Dubai, and features a couple of grand sweeping staircases, with elements of Art Deco. This is a view taken from the ground floor, looking up to the balcony and ceiling above. The image is almost abstract and works quite well in black & white, I think.

Quite possibly the world’s most expensive form of public transport(ation), gondolas pass beneath the Bridge of Sighs in Venice.
