Roussillon Door

Susan Sheldon's photo of a door in the sunshine in Roussillon France

France…Provence…Roussillon…one word…C’est Magnifique! Okay that was  two words. But what amazing sunshine! Roussillon with its amazing colours truly captured me. I was strolling down a back street and caught this door half hiding from the sun.

About susan sheldon

I am an explorer. It's taken me awhile to realise this. But I love capturing bits of our wonderful world with my camera, travelling through time and history, always returning to write, or paint what I've discovered. I use my Leica and my iPhone to capture images, and with those images I try to hold on to a feeling, a moment in our busy lives. Sometimes those moments bring me into the past, others into the studio to paint, or back to the old typewriter to try to use words to capture what the camera has done for me already. One of my goals in my blog is to have a space to take a breath away from our frantic world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.

    well this photo is fantastic – I can see how the clors and the light caught you – and I also found that i was soaking up some of the lines and shapes here – like the sunshine line has that sharp geometric cut – which brings the eye (well mine at least) right to the rectangles in the wooden door – and that diamond in the top one -a nd then we get all that texture and organic shape feel with the building structure – which is also changed in the sections split by light – really unique shot – make that… “Magnifique!”

    • Now I confess I did not spot two things on this door. A friend asked…where is the door handle..there is a buzzer, but no handle to open the door, not to mention a door number or post opening. I usually blur door numbers for privacy but not this time.

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
