The Collegiale church in Le Dorat has an imposing tower with a four-sided steepled roof. Fortuitously, there is a clock on each side of this sloping roof (which meets the criterion for this week’s Black & White Challenge) and as the sun sets on a very bright day, there is a pleasing contrast between the light and shady sides.
Indeed, I think this is brought out more effectively with a monochrome treatment, as here.

Cee’s challenge for this ‘assignment’ is to juxtapose natural and man-made light.
This photograph shows the interior of the old church in the ancient village of Saint Cirq Lapopie. On the wall on the right is the natural light of the sun, but the rest of the illumination is provided by the sunlight passing through the man-made stained glass widows.

Cee’s Black & White Challenge this week is ‘bigger than a bread box’ – or, indeed, ‘breadbin’.
You could hardly claim that that’s a particular limiting factor in making a choice of what to post.
So here’s a very big church located adjacent to the Argentomagus archaeological site.

The Chateau de la Riviere which featured last week is not all dereliction by any means. It is currently used as an equine stud farm. It also boasts its own chapel, which features some outstanding stained glass windows.

A view of part of the mightily impressive vaulted and domed ceiling of the Cathedral of Saint-Front in Perigueux.
I did my usual trick of lying the camera on the floor pointing upwards, setting the timer and hovering just out of shot to make sure that nobody steps on it. It gives a different perspective and also stops you getting a crick in your neck.
