Thursday Doors

18-05-17

Orthez, Aquitaine, France

A bit of a cop out really, but my excuse is 2 weeks of man flu and not very good weather. Hopefully I’ll be out and about soon and have some new doors to post. These images are from around 2006 and taken on a film camera.

Check out the excellent Norm 2.0 blog for a great selection of doors from around the globe.

My friends moved out to Aquitaine to set up a Bed & Breakfast, which I have visited many times. It’s such a lovely area, and I hope to be seeing them again later this year. The nearest town of any size is Orthez, it’s a set on the Gave de Pau, has some great buildings and more importantly some great doors.

I guess I’ve always liked photographing doors, archways, and gates !

Resting today after having a severe haircut  ! Well I don’t have much hair anyway, but it was a good excuse to chill out with the cats. A friends band are playing at a local pub tomorrow, looking forward to their music, meeting up with friends, and of course a few beers.
