PhotoHunt: chipped

Still limping slightly, but my trusty computer appears to have life in it yet.  So, here goes with a late PhotoHunt entry, all taken last weekend on a short visit to the Corrèze department in France.


A door with chipped paintwork.  The door is the entrance to a tower dating back to the Renaissance. 



Another door, this time the wood itself is chipped.


Chipped and worn steps up to a church entrance.

  3. I love the shot of the steps. I bet they've seen a few thousand pairs of feet over the years.

  5. Terrific photos! It's nice to know the church steps are worn, from traffic, lol.

    I did Photo Hunters today, too. I hope you get a chance to visit.

  6. The chipped wood door must be very old.

  11. How strange to think that pictures of crumbling stone and wood can be so interesting! What images come to mind of those that have passed that way. Good stuff.

  16. I wish we had interesting architecture where we live. But it's nice to be an armchair traveler at least! :)

  17. Wishing your computer better health. Great choices for this weeks theme. I lived in England for three years and never got a chance to visit France. My youngest was four when we moved there and he hated to travel around. Have a great weekend :)
