PhotoHunter: Two

I confess I could have gone on indefintiely with this one! However you will be relieved to know that I've restricted myself quite severely.


The two gateposts above can be found in Cap Ferrat, in the south of France. I love the symmetry, though I wish the left hand gate hadn't been slightly out of line.


The second two gateposts were found in the Yucatan in Mexico. Shabby and slightly delapidated, but I like their character. They would have been symmetrical too, if they hadn't been sagging here and there, with bits and pieces missing. Just like me really!


These two stone urns were on a wall overlooking one of the Villandry gardens. They aren't identical, as you will see below. I think they are wonderful - I couldn't stop looking at them.

  9. A. My photo hunt - one part is used for your header.

    I'm surprise you haven't change your header yet. I thought you would be sick of the header by now.

    But now that I look a it again - it doesn't look so bad.
