Back in Dijon

Dan’s Thursday Doors

Meanwhile back in Europe, THE place for fabulous doors, we find ourselves once more in Dijon.

Ginormous doors. Look at the size of the hinges.

A door that is also a gate. I suspect it was the front of a house once.

Another door gate in it’s fabulous red

Going back to Italy

Dan’s Thursday Doors

The doors of Italy. I must have some Italian blood as I just love going there every time I head to Europe. Let’s begin in Genoa with a very impressive doorway and a door that is dwarfed by the surrounding doorway.

A heraldic shield and impressive entrance in Verona

The wooden door from Milan with studs, brick arch and moulding

This could be a church door in Bologna

Going back to France

Dan’s Thursday Doors

These are a few doors from various places in France. First up is a rather ornate door in Lyon set in beautifully carved stone doorway and lintel

One reason I like to go to Lyon is to eat at Cafe Joseph with it’s cheerful green door. Unfortunately last time we were there I went to book for dinner. He said he no longer did evenings and he said that he was closing. It must be sad for the locals and office workers nearby as it was always packed at lunchtime.

Some of the doors in Avignon seen quite old

and some of the doors in Les Baux de Provence, just up the road from Avignon seem older still.
Baux is high on a hill and has been inhabited for millions of years. A French geologist Pierre Berthier discovered a red rock rich in alumina that he called bauxite, the main ore for the production of aluminium.

Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Skyline

While everyone at the Arc de Triomphe looking towards Place de la Concorde and at the Luxor Obelisk at the other end of the Champs-Elysées , I went to the other side where it was less crowded

Ragtag Daily Prompt Friday: Limit

We boarded the train
and headed off
what to discover
the countryside
blurring
more
at every second

Comfortable seats
room to spare
further along
clink
clank
rattle
rustle
the food trolley
almost here

But look
I say
the limit
achieved
Whizzing along

Later on……
