One of the things I love doing when on a walk here in South West France, whether it be in town or country, is to explore the color and textures that surround us in our environment.
Let’s have a closer look at this church that I came across at St. Sabine.
“Yes, I thought, quite a nice little country church, typical for this area of South West France.”
But as we get nearer – a lilac door no less – I wonder who thought of that color so many years ago? — A closer look is in order, me thinks………..
What a lovely pale lilac – now fading gently over the countless seasons of hot summer sun on these metal doors:
I want to get up close and personal – Let’s Go!
What a Surprise – Graffiti that I had no idea was there when I took the photo. I think there must have been some budding artists in St. Sabine when this door was painted. What fabulous texture and use of color – and on a French country church yard.
Ah, I’ve found another door at the side of the church
A wooden door here – old and peeling – but such a fabulous color and texture — Love it!
Well, this is just a little snippet of my observations on just one of the wonderful marked pathway walks we have here in South West France. This one is on the PR19, St Antonin Noble Val (post code 82140) round trip walk.
I took these photos with my ipad3 which I always take with me on my walks now, as you just never know what you will see.
Texture and color provide great influence for all sorts of projects – painting, decor, the picture and photo frames I make…… lots and lots of things. It’s worth keeping a record for the future – you just never know when it will come in useful!
More walking snippets to come later……………
