The Hungry Tortoise

Say what you like about the humble tortoise, but they’re never going to run away from you when you’re trying to get in for a close-up shot to reveal the intricate textures of shell and body.

Tale Of A Tile

A couple of years ago, when such things were still permitted, there was an ‘expo’ of hobbies and (in the French sense) ‘passions’ in the village.

One exhibitor displayed part of his collection of decorative tiles, of which this was one of the most striking.

On The Rails

Cee Neuner (what would we ever do without her?) has started a new weekly challenge: Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge – hereinafter referred to as CMMC.

For the first topic she has challenged us to post an image that contains an item in one of her own photographs. The one she chose featured a fence, which gives me an opportunity to post this photograph of a spider’s web spun between two railings of a fence by the river Vienne in Chabanais.
