Saturday Snapshots #5

2007 AuvillarDoor

Lucky or unlucky, November 2007

I found this door in the beautiful and ancient village of Auvillar on the Garonne in Gascony.  The village is well worth a visit for lovers of history, art or photography.  And for food lovers there is always the Sunday produce market, held in an unusual open-sided circular grain market.


This is part of a series of non-food photographs that will be published every Saturday on CookSister.

    Barbara – thank you! The whole village was a visual delight…
    Andrew – it was shot at my usual crazy ISO of 1600 which might explain some of the inherent graininess. Other than that I cropped, pumped up the midtone contrast and saturated the blues.
    Elra – well spotted!! Looking at another pic of the whole building (it’s the town’s Office de Tourisme, btw) it seems these are probably shutters rather than doors. Presumably the door behind the shutters has a handle. Or maybe they just don’t like tourists 😉
