Much bigger than a breadbin

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.

Take a Pew

Take a pew? Somebody’s taken all of them from this church in Confolens and replaced them with chairs.

Monday Window: Chapel of Chateau de la Riviere

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.

Monday Window: Perigueux Cathedral

I missed out on posting a window last Monday, so to make up the shortfall here are two fine examples of stained glass, from the Cathedral of Saint Front, in Perigueux.

Look up

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.

Faded Fresco

This faded – and, by the look of it, unfinished – fresco in the church at Confolens is in need of some sympathetic restoration…

Monday Window: The church at Azay-Le-Ferron

Last week I featured a window at the chateau in Azay-Le-Ferron, and this week I’ve moved on to the church.

Stained glass is nowhere near as impressive when viewed from the outside, but it’s an interesting and attractive window nonetheless, and harmonises well with the church door, I think.
