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.

Look up

A view of part of the mightily impressive vaulted and domed ceiling of the Cathedral of Saint-Front in Perigueux.

I did my usual trick of lying the camera on the floor pointing upwards, setting the timer and hovering just out of shot to make sure that nobody steps on it. It gives a different perspective and also stops you getting a crick in your neck.

Through the archway

I spotted this little statue of a sanglier (wild boar) through an aRchway in the old town of Perigueux.

The curve of the boar\s back echoes that of the archway and contrasts with the more formal geometric shapes of the stonework and the steps.
