Beware of low-flying motorbikes

There’s a bikers’ hotel in the nearby village of Bussière-Poitevine. With this sign hanging from the wall, it’s hard to miss

Thursday Doors: Perigueux – Fin de Série

At last, the well of doors from Perigueux seems to have run dry…

…although we are going back again in a few weeks. so who knows?

Last week, we finished with a green door, so in the interests of continuity….

This door seems to be sitting quietly at the bottom of a tower, trying not to be noticed:

While this one is tucked away in a little courtyard, close to a rather good Indian restaurant:

And sometimes you just have to keep your eyes peeled:

These next two are the same, but different:

And finally, it’s not really about the door in this instance, but this is an impressive shopfront:

Thursday Doors: If it’s Thursday it must be Perigueux – again

I promise faithfully that there will come an end to this steady stream of doors from the town of Perigueux, in south-west France.

But not this week…or next week, come to that.

However, in the interests of balanced reporting, this time we feature three arched doors and three rectangular ones, all with their individual character, I’d venture to say.

Starting with the arched doors, this one seems to be looking straight back at me:

Whereas this one just looks put upon and generally world-weary:

while this one just seems denied of any basic respect:

Those doors with squarer shoulders fare a little better:

but not much:

Nice, finally, to see one ready to stand up to the challenge:

Looking down on St-Germain-de-Confolens

The very photogenic nearby village of St-Germain-de-Confolens is dominated by the old chateau that towers over it. If you can manage the hike up to the top, the views are very worthwhile.
