Cee’s Black & White Challenge this week is ‘bigger than a bread box’ – or, indeed, ‘breadbin’.
You could hardly claim that that’s a particular limiting factor in making a choice of what to post.

Last week, Cee wanted images of old buildings; this time it’s modern homes. I stayed (relatively) local for the old buildings – being pretty much surrounded by them in this part of France, quite apart from actually living in one myself.
Of course there are modern homes here too, but most of them are just not very interesting to look at. Whereas in Dubai pretty much everything is modern and a lot of it is architecturally noteworthy. This is the Pearl Resdence, one of the almost literally countless residential apartment blocks in the city. That’s another one reflected in its plate glass frontage.
