This is a picture from inside the steps leading up the north tower in the cathedral at Bourges. There are 396 steps. It says the panoramic view from the top is a photographer's delight. If you have a great head for heights, it may be.
Closer to home there are quite a few examples.
The rusty gate, though, really is very close to home.
But my favourite is very much less mundane.
Pillars from the painted interior of the church at Saint Savin sur Gartempe. The interior of this 11th century church was painted during the 11th and 12th century. The pillars were intended to look like marble and even the walls were painted to look like bricks.
