Autumn sunrise

The soft colours of an autumn sunrise over our fields fits the brief for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week.

This black and white butterfly was happy to feast on the white buddleia bush that grows in our garden.

In the red

Many years ago, I did a weekend beginners’ photography course in Abu Dhabi. We were let loose for an hour or so to snap away at whatever took our fancy, and I came across this graffito on the floor of the compound. So I took out my wallet and posed it underneath.

I still have that wallet; and it’s still empty.

Blue reflections

The glass walls of the pool produce the optical illusion that there are two performing seals earning their keep here at Taronga Zoo in Sydney.

Ribbit

There’s a small pond in the corner of our garden that every summer is commandeered and jealously guarded by the local frogs.

Outside the Notaire’s

These brass plaques can be seen outside the offices of Notaires (public notaries) all over France. However, they’re not all as aesthetically framed against a rough-cast wall as this one, in Confolens.

Abandoned Railway, Chabanais

On a heavily overcast day there’s more than a touch of gloomy sadness about the now unused railway lines that run through the town of Chabanais.

Keep Out

I spotted this barred window on an old building in the village of Bussière-Poitevine and it seemed perfect for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week. It reminds me of one of those ‘coffee-time’ magazine puzzles where you have to find as many squares and rectangles as possible in the diagram.
