Beautiful photos from France - castles and shadows are a perfect combination

Wonderful shadows! The sun shone obligingly bright for you.

These views are classic, the real Old Worlde that we do not see in North America. Shutters that actually shut out the light and lovely stone facades. Fortified castles that are centuries old are a treat found over there. A great trip to Europe where the vies are really classic!

What a super medieval town to visit... especially for shadows! :-) My favorite is the lantern shadow on the black door.

The narrow, beshadowed streets in the top photos are filled with mystery and intrigue!


MY BLINGLESS SHADOW

A shadow’s an odd sort of thing;
It might have a nose or a wing,
A tail like a dog,
A bump like a log,
But one thing it has not is bling!

Ah, those wonderful French gods! They even know how to create the perfect light for the perfect shadows! And you caught them superbly! Love your captures for the day, Kay! Superb! Hope your weekend is going well!

So many intriguing shadows in this beautiful place. I love your shot looking down the alley way and through the arch.

Fantastic shots from France.

Greyscale Territory said...

An intriguing place to wander! It looks as if this place has many olde worlde stories to tell!

Kay said...

These are all such great shots, Kay!

Carola said...

These are fantastic shadow shots. I like the way you show us this old town.
We came along the Canal du Midi in this interesting area.

Beth said...

Oh these are all just too lovely...I am green pea envious! Thanks too for popping by my shadow shot and commenting! Yes, I love old weathered wood too. Those steps accompany my 100+ year old converted barn hubbie and I live in in the rural woods of New Hampshire.
See you next week,
Hugs,

Lovely!

Carola Bartz said...

Great shadow shots! My absolute favorite is the shadow that the streetlamp casts on the dark door. But all the other ones are gorgeous as well - and of course Carcassone is just a fascinating place. You captured it really well.

Cassie said...

Never been to France so really appreciate this lovely shadowy tour you've taken me on! Happy SSS.

Annabella said...
