Monday Window – Tranquility Base

Just over 50 yards from our house in the little hamlet that I refer to as Tranquility Base is this small window in – for want of a better word – a shed. It belongs to a couple who spend the summer here (although not in the shed).

Does anybody else see the resemblance to a cartoonish human face?

Monday Window – Chartres

This week it’s the turn of stained glass for Khürt’s Monday Window challenge.

This is one of the biggest windows you’ll see anywhere: the rose window in the Cathedral of Chartres.

Monday Window – Le Dorat

The nearby town of Le Dorat hosted the ‘Mondial de Tonte’ (that’s the world sheep-shearing championships) back in July. For such an occasion, the place was, naturally, ‘en fête’, with most shop doors and windows being decorated with amusing pictures such as this one:

Monday Window – Chauvigny

This ‘secular’ stained glass window clearly isn’t contemporary with the medieval church in Chauvigny where it can be found – but that doesn’t make it a bad thing.
