Favouring the rustic look with these fenceposts at the Roman archaeological site of Cassinomagus:

This knothole can be found in an ancient wooden door up in the medieval citadel of the French town of  Confolens.

Tuesdays of Texture: Firepit

We’ve just spent a week in a holiday cottage in the still largely rural East Lothian region of Scotland. Although the weather wasn’t good enough (October? Scotland? I don’t think so) for us to use it, this firepit/barbecue area certainly offered a whole range of textures.

Tuesdays of Texture: Clogs

This image from the workshop of the local clogmaker in nearby Montrol-Sénard, a living museum of rural life, certainly displays some very interesting textures.

It resonates particularly for me, because what is now the entrance hall of our home was once the atelier of the local sabotier.

Although we have had it done up a bit:

Tuesdays of Texture: Landing Stage

Staying on the island of Burano, where that church door from last week needs a lick of paint, is this little wooden stage that allows boat-owners to avoid getting their feet wet when boarding or disembarking from their vessel. I was struck by the contrast between the glassy (anti-texture?) water and the rough surface of the wood. Complementary colours, too.

Tuesdays Of Texture: Window

Alerted by the estimable Norm 2.0, I thought I’d make a contribution to the ‘Tuesdays of Texture’ stream hosted by Narami at De Monte Y Mar.

This old window is to be found high up on the wall of Paulette’s barn, here in the very hameau referred to in the name of this blog. I think the textures of the wood, the stone work and the metal are all worth a look.
