This post is in answer to a recent post by Rommel, one of my favourite bloggers over at The Sophomore Slump . He’s just put up a post he calls ETC, which actually stands for a lot of photo rejects that he deemed unworthy of posting. They have only just seen the light of day, and I’m glad they did! In one of his replies to a comment he said ‘someone here needs to do an etc post!’ A challenge like that has to be taken up. Rommel plucked his photos from all sorts of times and places. I’ve done mine slightly differently and taken all the pics from one period in May this year. So here we are, a bunch of pics taken when our Irish biker visitors came to stay for a few days and we had some great ride-outs to some of our local beauty spots here in the Dordogne.
A telephoto shot across a valley at La Roque Saint Christophe, home to prehistoric cave dwellers 55,000 years ago.
Our bikes at Limeuil (especially note the gorgeous silver one extreme right). A beautiful village where the Dordogne & Vezere rivers meet.
At Cadouin Abbey, founded in 1115 where pilgrims came.
Ah, the scent of roses!
