Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreamy

From last winter, trees reflected in Tranquility Base’s very own étang.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Endurance

The blue paint on this old door in the nearby village of Bonnefont, here in Haute-Vienne, has obviously endured whatever the local climate has thrown at it over many years.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Relic

Recently, I went to a display of old cars and farming machinery in the village of Lesterps, not far from here. I now have many, many pictures of ancient tractors and some quite cool vintage cars, but this image of a child’s tricycle from yesteryear is perhaps a bit more than just a record shot.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Spring

One of my little ‘projects’ for this year is to record the passing seasons here at Tranquility Base by taking a photograph on the first day of each month of the same view – of our large field – from the same perspective. Here, I’ve run the last three together to illustrate how Spring has come to rural France this year.

Shame about the weather…

Rural Reflections

Two photographs taken close to Tranquility Base. Yvette’s barn is actually in the hamlet, while Chez Fiaud is a couple of kilometers away, on one of our local walks.

It’s been pleasantly, if unseasonably, warm and sunny lately here at Tranquility Base: perfect weather for a walk along the quiet local roads.
