My offering for Thursday Doors this week is not exactly pretty and certainly not an impressive example of a door but I found this farm cottage on the edge of a quiet lane a compelling subject for a few photos. It seemed to be almost out of place amongst the lush vineyards of south western France although the architecture and the stone are completely typical of our region. Baked by the sun, surrounded by fields and apparently abandoned, it would be easy to imagine this house was somewhere in the heat of a Spanish landscape or even on the set of a movie of the old American West.
More intriguing still were the vapour trails which seemed to form a fan from the roof of the house and the electric cable, which I purposely left in the photos, as it appears to connect the building to some mysterious power supply up in the heavens. Broken links between an old world and the new one………
Thanks as always to Norm for hosting this excellent challenge.
