A really lovely old doorlatch mounted onto the original wooden door, 17th Century maybe earlier I am not sure I just loved the look of it!

This could also make a rather interesting New Home Card!

We live in the West of France in the Poitou Charentes region, I love where we live and take a lot of inspiration for photography from the countryside and wonderful regions around us.

I have not had any formal training and just feel comfortable behind the lens, enjoying the feeling of liberty and fun that is to be had with a camera.

I also have a FaceBook Page
