France is also full of quaint old doors in different colors, shapes and sizes....windows framed with stone, shuttered in blue and dressed in lace. And so many churches that if I may say so....look so much alike that I think there must have been a lazy architect way back when.
A small blue door brings attention to itself in a hidden corner of the Hotel L'Escalin, La Garde Adhémar
Two country churches, both on the way up to Col de Noyer near St. Bonnet
I am always curious to know where the archway leads.
Church at St. Bonnet. Hmmm, where have I seen that design before? The scroll above the door translates into "God has given you time, what are you doing with it?"
The surround on the left window is painted!!! Stone surround as I like it. (St. Bonnet)
This alley/road leads to the town cinema. (St. Bonnet)
One of the two church steeples (Barcelonnette). Two churches in one town and they couldn't get them synchronized. One starts to toll and moments later, the second starts in. For 1pm, it's not a problem, but it's a cacophony of clanging iron when they both ring out the longer hours.
