Door – Weekly Photo Challenge

The challenge this week was ‘Door’.

This door was seen in the tiny village which lies at the foot of Chateauneuf in the Burgundy region of France.  The door decorations look like some kind of secret sign language.


This door is situated in one of the outbuildings of Chateauneuf.  As stress cracks go, those are pretty good.

This door (a lock door) looks as though it’s opening onto a whole new cruising experience.  In actual fact, it was stuck like that, with us inside the lock.  I sense a slimy lock-ladder climb coming up.  😦

And finally a straightforward, old fashioned door.

About Sandra

I used to cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and wrote fiction and poetry. Now I live on the beautiful Dorset coast, enjoying the luxury of being able to have a cat, cultivating an extensive garden and getting involved in the community. I still write fiction, but only when the spirit moves me - which isn't as often as before. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.

    Really enjoyed perusing your great collection of doors but I have to admit the big lock door had me feeling grateful I wasn’t in your position!


  6. Wide variety of doors, Sandra. I especially liked the last one for the carving on it. 🙂

    What a nice variety. I love the top photo. It suggests a secret, private door. What is the significance of the wheat on the door?


I'd love to hear your views; it reassures me I'm not talking to myself.
