Kitchen doorknob

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week demands images of doorknobs.

Her wish is my command, so here – viewed from above – is the knob on one of the drawers in our kitchen. They look nice, but do try to avoid walking into them.

Tuesdays of Texture: Bizarre Cat

Apparently, a bizarre cat lives behind this ancient door (albeit one with a modern lock) on a house in the medieval quarter of Confolens:

Thursday Doors: Close To Home

Last week’s door wasn’t very far from here, but today I’m even closer to home: about 30 feet from my back door.

Our house is actually two cottages knocked together (if you want to know a little more, you can read this) and forms one end of a larger bâtiment which includes two barns, one of which belongs to us and one to our neighbour, Albert (whose own house is just in front of ours). Needless to say, this being rural France, our barn is at the far end of the bâtiment, and it’s Albert’s that adjoins our house.

You get used to it.

Anyway, this picture is a detail of the very ancient side door to Albert’s barn. You can get some idea of its age from the grooves that have been worn in the wood from the swinging latch. I’m glad I took this when I did, because he’s only gone and painted it, hasn’t he?
