Cee is lookung for a combination of orange and green for her Fun Foto Challenge this week. With the stem invisible, this wild orange poppy appears to be floating freely against a green background.

No, not that kind of cat house.
There’s a ginger cat that roams freely round our little hamlet. He belongs to one of our neighbours, but a couple of other residents also keep it well looked after,
So well, indeed, that this improvised cat kennel has recently appeared outside the front door of one of them.

The Auberge Cheval Blanc stands at the main crossroads in the nearby town of Bellac.
For the avoidance of doubt, the horse looking out of the window isn’t real.
Then again, neither is the window….
(P.S. I’m taking it that the restaurant is being run as a commercial enterprise)

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.

Look out from the glass-walled lift that’s installed in the church tower of the medieval town of Sarlat, in the Dordogne, and old buildings is just about all you get.
