This – really very good – boulangerie in the village has just closed down without notice and no indication of why. At least we still have the local superette (which used to be based in these premises – hence the ‘Viveco’ sign), where the bread was better anyway, although not quite a match when it came to patisserie.
I do still have a ‘proper’ camera – it’s in the title of this blog – but nowadays it only comes out for special excursions. Smartphone cameras are now so good for normal occasions, and much more convenient than lugging around an old-school full camera kit all the time.
This photo shows a detail from the Roman museum in Perigueux. It’s part of a carefully reconstructed Roman villa which is replete with statuary and carved stonework. However, I thought this crop made for an interesting abstract image when rendered into monochrome.
