Let There Be Light

Cee’s challenge for this ‘assignment’ is to juxtapose natural and man-made light.

This photograph shows the interior of the old church in the ancient village of Saint Cirq Lapopie. On the wall on the right is the natural light of the sun, but the rest of the illumination is provided by the sunlight passing through the man-made stained glass widows.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Natural v Man-made light

Monday Window: Le Dorat

Quite a contrast in the state of repair of the windows – not to mention the roofs – of these adjoining buildings in the Place Collègiale in Le Dorat.

As I recall, that boulangerie did a mean pain aux raisins.
