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.

52 Week Smartphone Challenge: 23 Leading Lines

Week 23 of the Smartphone Challeneg is, frankly, a bit of an odd one. We are invited to use strong leading lines in food photography.

Okay….

Now, as I do not use Instagram (where I believe it’s compulsory), I’m not in the habit of posting photographs of every scrap of food I consume, I just had to come up with something.

So here’s a picture of a swede (‘rutabaga‘ en français) on our kitchen table.

The kitchen of the castle

This surprisingly modest old kitchen is on display at a Chateau in the Dordogne departement of France.

Blue and Yellow

Cee’s theme for her Fun ‘Foto’ Challenge this week is ‘blue and yellow’ – always a harmonious combination.

As it happens, the colour scheme of our kitchen is blue and yellow, and the endlessly talented Madame has made table mats, napkins, covers for appliances and many other things to match the theme. Including this wall hanging:

Table Setting, Medieval Style

This week, Cee’s theme has come round again to anything that might be found in a kitchen. Strictly speaking, I suppose, this table setting in the restored refectory of the Abbaye de La Réau isn’t exactly kitchenware. There again, where else would the dishwasher be?

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Kitchen

Frank has chosen ‘Kitchen’ as the theme for this week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge, so here is an image from the restored kitchens of the medieval Abbaye de La Réau.

Clearly, these are not the original pots and pans and jars – unless Bonne Maman has been making jam for a lot longer than anyone has ever suspected.

Bellows

This set of bellows hangs next to the wood-burning stove in our kitchen. The shape contrasts well with the brickwork.

Coffee and Chrome

For this week’s edition of Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – and my 100th post on this site, to boot –  here’s one of the most important appliances in my kitchen (and quite probably many of yours too).
