This well-weathered wooden bench is just outside the Cabinet Médicale, on the main road through our local village of Mézières-sur-Issoire. It’s been there for quite a while.

The Pont Valentré, which bridges the river Lot in Cahors, dates from the fourteenth century, so certainly qualifies for Cee’s category this week of anything over 50 years old.
Then again, so do I….
The bridge’s four towers makes it visually appealing not only from a distance but also – unlike some – when you’re actually standing on it.

Cee’s Black & White challenge this week looks for a large object. To me, ‘large’ is a relative term: any elephant would look large stood next to a mouse, even if it’s pretty average-sized as far as elephants go.
However, there’s no doubt that this is one large spider. On display in Nantes (as, indeed, is an extra-large mechanical elephant), it’s lucky that it’s a man-made object rather than the real thing, because I for one would be running a mile.
