Thursday Doors: Still Perigueux

The gift that keeps on giving – another selection of doors from the recently discovered cache of photographs I took in the town of Perigueux last year.

It seems to be a quite popular thing to have doors made of asymmetric lengths of wood, which must be an OCD nightmare:

 

 

Those two have obviously recently had a fresh coat of varnish, which you couldn’t say for this:

Two contrasting doors side by side:

I admit, this shot is more about the autumnal colours (it was taken last October) than the door, but there’s definitely one in there:

However, this is my favourite from this week’s gallery:

Thursday Doors: Even More From Perigueux (3)

Another instalment from Perigueux of doors with fading charms.

This must have been quite a grand house once upon a time:

A couple of doors glimpsed from other doorways:

Two doors AND the inside of a shutter, all in one:

And a door within a door. with some interesting nailwork:

This one seems to be trying to hide in a corner:

To begin with, some doors that used to be doors:

Some real doors, but showing their age:

Old, but in rather better condition:

And finally, for this week, a juxtaposition of old and new:

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Wall

I can think pf quite a few people who would find the closeness of the walls in this old house in Perigueux rather unsettling.

Medieval vanishing point

In the medieval streets of the French town of Perigueux, this old-style drainage system disappears up the hill.

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Vanishing Point

A sense of perspective

For this week’s Black & White Photo Challenge, Cee wants to see something ‘in the distance’. Perhaps like the main road that can just be seen at the far end of this narrow passageway in the medieval quarter of the town of Perigueux.
