Sometimes it's fun to leave the big picture behind and focus on the details. Like this gros plan (close-up) of a column on the Château de Valençay.

The base of a column. April 2004.

The weather forecasters were right about the spring-like weather we'd be having now. While the mornings are still chilly, by late afternoon it's quite pleasant outside. So much so, that there are way too many people out enjoying it. Usually we have free reign on the vineyard road to walk Tasha, but lately we've had to contend with other people and their pooches coming and going. Too much traffic! It's because this is the time of winter vacation and people are enjoying their time off. Now, however, rain is predicted toward the end of the week. We'll see if they're right about that.


  1. Funny about those people being in YOUR vineyard!

  2. Yes, Evelyn, and I was wondering if you've changed the timing of your walks so you would not have to get in line!

  3. This closeup is excellent. At a glance I thought it was a fabric swatch.


Tell me what you think!
