The Detail Fanatic in Me…

Ok, I will confess that I am being side tracked today.

My range of walking is limited by the crutches and carrying the camera isn’t easy, but I wanted to be a little mobile so I did my exercises in stages, progressing slowly around the courtyard around the gite.

The old farmhouse that is attached to the gite has been empty for years but there are still beautiful details in the windows, walls and doors.

The detail fanatic in me forced me to take my time to get over to these and make an effort to capture their beauty.

The oldest section of  the farm buildings date from 1783. I imagine that if only they could speak, the story that these items could tell of their life on a working farm in rural France over the centuries would be no doubt be a long and interesting one.

I do have to admit though that you will no doubt swiftly spot the “odd item out” within my photo series… whilst  it’s definitely a 21st Century addition,  but I think it is a nice reflection of the “old and new” that typically makes up our lives today.
