Over in France


This is the medieval gateway affording entrance to the old town of Pouancé, just a few miles up the road from our holiday cottage. I took this picture on a whim - no tripod, just leaning against a wall or post - and was astonished how well it came out. I think it looks warm and romantic - but that is despite knowing that the lighted window just through the arch is a grotty kebab shop!

Crikey! You've got a kebab shop?

We can only dream of a fast food outlet!

Great pic! The wonderful thing about photography is its ability to surprise and delight you with unforeseen results. At times.
