Mundane Monday: Bottles

I thought I’d return to the Mundane Monday Challenge hosted by trablogger.com. In a new departure, we’re to get a theme for each week, starting this time with ‘Bottles’.

This display outside a shop in Sarlat, in the Dordogne, is certainly colourful, although I prefer the colour of the bottles to their contents: an aperitif flavoured with salted caramel. I think I’ll stick to pastis, thank you very much.

Mundane Monday Challenge 1 January 2018

Mundane? Or should that be mundrain?

I spotted this ornate water spout and drain cover in the old part of the small French port of Honfleur:

Mundane? Webs

A sure sign that a building is unoccupied is to look for spiders’ webs. It doesn’t take long for the spiders to reclaim their territory, as in this window in the medieval back streets of Confolens. To judge from the old stickers, this particular place was last owned or run by a motor mechanic (although obviously not a medieval one).

Mundane? Staircase

This little-used, but intriguing, stone staircase is tucked away in the narrow streeets of the medieval quarter of the town of Confolens. The composition is almost abstract and puts me in mind a little of Escher.

Mundane? Plantpots

I spotted these forlorn planpots outside this second floor window of an obviously unoccupied building on the main shopping street of the town of Confolens, in the Charente département of France:

Mundane? Onion

Half a red onion left lying on the black worksurface in our kitchen.

Mundane? Park Bench

Another mundane (?) image from St Junien: this park bench is also outside the local Tourist Information Office, not far from last week’s postbox. Properly framed, the symmetry is quite appealing.
