A walk up to the castle of Beynac (Périgord). During this year’s trip to France I was often intrigued by the way roofs, pigeonaires and chimneys seemed to define space in very particular ways, and I tried to capture something of what I thought I understood in these pictures.
Part two will take you inside the castle where I fooled with the available light…
Since the ascent to the castle was indeed a walk, and because our path was lined by traces of the past, I seize the opportunity to participate in two great challenges: Jo’s Monday Walks and Thursday’s Special at Paula’s. Please check them out; both Paula and Jo have regular challenges, and both of them are great hosts.
For this week’s photo challenge.
And since this is another Monday Walk for Jo, here’s the Périgord landscape you see once you look up from the details…
While traveling, I find it difficult to decide how abstract or documentary I want my pictures to be. This year, without my minifigures around (which I only regretted once), I decided to do two things:
- Follow the light.
- Keep in mind that I might want to contribute to Jo’s Monday Walks.
That evening in Périgueux, we enjoyed the upside of less-than-nice weather, and the pictures are all about light.
In Les Eyzies, Périgord, France. An entry for the Weekly Photo Challenge.
