February’s Last Photo

We had a short weekend break in the city of Perigueux, capital of the Dordogne département. Walking back along the river bank to our hotel, I took this photo of the Cathedral of Saint-Front, which dominates the city’s medieval centre.

Polygonal

There are more polygons than you could count in this image of the roof of one of the galleries of Dubai Mall.

Sweeping

This old stone staircase in the Bordeaux town of Saint-Emilion is rather grand, especially considering that it’s not in a stately home but rather an open-sided building housing a number of artisan workshops.

Complexity

This close-up of a small part of the infrastructure of the Sydney Harbour Bridge gives some idea of the intricate complexity of the steelwork.

Looming

Definitely a large subject for Cee’s Black & White Challenge this week is this looming tower, part of the medieval fortifications of the city of Perigueux.

Eye-Popping Escalier

Cee’s Midweek Challenge this week requires us to show something with an ‘I’ in its name or, indeed, an eye.

This is an unusual perspective on the multi-storey stairwell of a small hotel in Paris. Fortunately there’s also a lift (or elevator, if you must).

Architectural Incongruity

I was struck by the incongruity of the balcony plonked in the middle of this house in the village of Lesterps.

Cornered

This little set of square steps in Perigueux used to lead somewhere. Probably.

Hole In The Wall

Is a window without a pane really anything more than just a hole in the wall?
