Tuesday Photo Challenge: Junk

In the UK, the conventional wisdom is that, if you’re looking to sell your house, you make it clean and tidy; perhaps brew some fresh coffee, even bake some bread, in order to create a cosy, welcoming ambience for the prospective purchaser.

In rural France, however, as we discovered on our own house-hunting trip, it’s common practice just to pile up a load of junk and invite the viewer to use their imagination and see past it.

(We didn’t buy this one – although that isn’t to say that the one we did end up acquiring looked any better on first sight)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Spare
