This knothole can be found in an ancient wooden door up in the medieval citadel of the French town of Confolens.

Cee’s challenge this week is to post an image of a sign.
I spotted this outside the offices of a firm of advocates in Confolens, just at the right time of day to get the interesting shadow.

A pair of kites – which actually were black and white – flying together in a stiff breeze at the annual Esteval air show just outside the nearby village of Blond.

Answering this week’s theme of ‘Lights’ for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge is this massive chandelier (note the scale of the human figures in the background) in Dubai Mall. I’m not sure it’s one of the fanciest I’ve ever seen, but it’s certainly one of the biggest.

Macro Moments Challenge #39 looks for something in black & white; or something that is black and white. Either way, I think this fits the bill: a close-up of the characteristic top of one of my small collection (accumulated over a period of more than thirty years) of Mont Blanc Meisterstuck writing instruments.
Like most people, I imagine, my writing nowadays is usually done with a keyboard, but whenever the need or opportunity arises I still like to use an old-fashioned fountain pen. My absolute favourite is the big old Mont Blanc 149 that I bought in 1985. This is a smaller version, sitting in a mug on my desk.
