Splendid isolation

This larger than life statue stands in splendid isolation in the museum of the Vessuna Gallo-Roman archaeological site in Perigueux.

Fresh Cabbage

Who knew? Even cabbages can be interesting when you get up close to them – especially when they are as good and fresh as these, seen on a stall at the excellent Saturday market in Perigueux.

February’s Last Photo

We had a short weekend break in the city of Perigueux, capital of the Dordogne département. Walking back along the river bank to our hotel, I took this photo of the Cathedral of Saint-Front, which dominates the city’s medieval centre.

Last on the card

Blue Sky Thinking

The bluest of blue skies above the town of Perigueux.

This image has been cropped but is otherwise completely unretouched: the sky really was that blue.

Pulling in the punters

The picturesque city of Perigueux is (in normal times) a popular tourist destination. Inevitably that means there are lots of shops, all competing for footfall from passers-by. Signs alone are not enough in some cases.

Looming

Definitely a large subject for Cee’s Black & White Challenge this week is this looming tower, part of the medieval fortifications of the city of Perigueux.

Cornered

This little set of square steps in Perigueux used to lead somewhere. Probably.

Shadows and reflections

Cee’s theme for her Black & White Challenge this week is shadows and reflections. You’re more likely to get just one or the other in a single image, but this picture of a well-preserved stone sarcophagus in the cloister of the local museum at Perigueux manages to combine the two thanks to the strong shadow cast by the bright sunlight and the reflection of yours truly (sadly, rather less well=preserved).

Monday Window: Perigueux Cathedral

I missed out on posting a window last Monday, so to make up the shortfall here are two fine examples of stained glass, from the Cathedral of Saint Front, in Perigueux.
