Toadstool or Mushroom?

For the latest iteration of Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – It’s All About Nature – I’ve chosen this toadstool (or is it a mushroom?) that I found growing by the side of the road near Chansigaud. In real life, it’s a creamy colour, but the monochrome brings out the texture (note especially the jagged edges) very well, I think.

Thursday Doors: Chansigaud

Back closer to home for this week’s Thursday Doors. About a mile up the track from here at Tranquility Base, at the junction with¬†what is somewhat optimistically called ‘the main road’, is a working sheep farm called Chansigaud. The building in this image is now used for storage but it was formerly the family home.

The door at the foot of the external staircase (quite a common feature around here: we used to have one ourselves) is remarkably tatty – and not very draught-proof.
