The Corridor

Last week I visited the grand old Franciscan Abbaye de la Réau, which is currently undergoing substantial restoration. On the first floor of the accommodation block is this long corridor with, it must be said, rather palaial ‘cells’ (more like ‘suites’) leading off it.

The combination of light and shadow is what makes this image particularly suitable for monochrome treatment. Further interest is added by the model of a monk sitting on a bench away in the distance on the left.

Tuesdays of Texture: Ruined Abbey

This partly overgrown double arched window can be found at the medieval Franciscan Abbaye de la Réau in the Vienne département of France. It looks like it’s had some restoration work done on it, but there’s a long way to go.
