Flight Path

I have to admit that this is a pretty free interpretation of Cee’s Black & White challenge this week of ‘public transport’. However, the image – which is really all about the clouds – does include an aeroplane, which is certainly a form of public transport.

This particular ‘plane is on its final descent into Heathrow Airport in London and is just passing over the railway bridge that crosses the Thames at Barnes.

Thursday Doors: More From Perigueux

After the last few weeks’ diversions, we’re back to the town of Perigueuex in the Dordogne for another selection of doors from its medieval centre.

To begin with, two doors for the price of one, with a nice juxtaposition of old and new:

And here are a couple more doors with some colour to them:

But it remains the case that most doors are just plain brown – even this comparatively modern one:

As well as these older examples:

Toilet Humour

I have no explanation why this cartoon is nailed to the wall on the second floor of an old building in the town of Sarlat, and is visible only through a window on the staircase of a museum.

It is quite amusing, though, so fits Cee’s Fun ‘Foto’ Challenge theme this week of ‘funny’.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Memories

I wonder if Frank had forgotten that the theme for this week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge – Memories – is the same as one he set in March this year?

Whatever, this is perhaps the oldest photo I’ve ever posted here, it having been taken in the summer of 1978 on a family holiday in Cornwall. That’s our daughter being delighted at her first experience in a boat that we’d come across when she and I went for a walk on the beach.

I remember quite clearly that when we got back to where we were staying she went round proudly telling anyone who would listen: “I’ve been in a boat”.

Mist on the river

The Vienne river flows over the weir on a misty morning in the town of Chabanais.

Thursday Doors: Mezieres-sur-Issoire (Finale)

This week we have what are, to the best of my knowledge, the last few photogenic doors in the local village of Mézières-sur-Issoire

Last week’s post ended with the door at 1 Rue du Lavoir. Here are some more doors from the same little street:

In rather better condition is this shed door, to be found on the main road:

And finally, just to prove that we’re all out of doors, an impressively weatherbeaten pair of shutters (big enough to be a door)

Friday Night Lights

In response to Cee’s Fun ‘Foto’ Challenge with the theme of ‘lights’, here is another night shot taken from the balcony of our apartment in Abu Dhabi, with traffic busy as usual on Hamdan Street.
