This photo shows a detail from the Roman museum in Perigueux. It’s part of a carefully reconstructed Roman villa which is replete with statuary and carved stonework. However, I thought this crop made for an interesting abstract image when rendered into monochrome.
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.
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.
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).
