The Saillac Series: Post Two -- Window Watching


What expat photo blogger can resist the occasional foray into a door or window feature?


I do put off posting on the subject because I don't really have that much to say about it, but it's not for lack of photos...

What local events have been watched through them over the centuries?

lovely photographs - I really like the lunar cut-outs in the shutters. There is something about French doors and windows, and the older and more weathered, the better.
