Not your average windsock

For this week’s Fun ‘Foto’ Challenge, Cee wants to see at least four colours of the rainbow. This windsock with a full rainbow of colours was seen at the annual Air Show at nearby Blond.

A double helping of biscuits

Based in Nantes, the French biscuit manufacturers Lu (Lefevre Utile) are long-established and happily still producing, even if not in their original factory. Their ‘petits écoliers’ chocolate biscuits – especially the plain chocolate version – cannot be recommended too highly.

Apart from the product itself, Lu’s publicity material is also iconic. This image is of a pair of their advertising signs from around the turn of the last century, and was taken in the Chateau des Ducs museum in Nantes.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: RGB

This week’s Tuesday Challenge on Dutch Goes The Photo! was to post an image containing the three key photographic colours of red, green and blue. Simple enough, you might think but although I have lots of shots with two out of the three, there weren’t so many that included all of them.

However, I found this: it’s a windsock at a small local airfield that has an annual summer air show. As you can see from the bend of the pole to which it is attached, it was quite a windy day, but a fast exposure (1/750) effectively froze the movement to reveal all the colours.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Look Up

The Ostensions is a religious festival that takes place every seven years, over the spring and summer.  2016 is one of those years.

During this period, relics of the saints are paraded through the main towns in the region.

For the period of the Ostensions, the cathedral at Limoges and its surroundings are bedecked by colourful bunting.
