Beauty is in the details. In southern France, I couldn’t resist shots of old gates and shutters. Their age and color are responsible for tempting my camera. While playing, I layered other photos over them to create this result. Enjoy Provence!

French Gates in Provence
I am a native New Yorker , transplanted to Memphis, who is a photographer, teacher, and wanderer. I am inspired by the beauty and stories that resonate from abandoned places and found objects. View all posts by unsouthernbelle

great work….I have to find time learn how to do some of this stuff. I could stop sleeping I guess.

Thank you! You don’t have to give up sleep. It’s not really all that difficult. Using photoshop elements makes it a breeze.

I have a copy and I have been working through some of the basics in between other photography work, a mosaic I’m doing, a book I’m putting together, blogging, hiking…I think the sleeping has got to go LOL

If I had all that going on, sleeping would go! I’m getting ready for the new school year ( in 3 weeks) , trying to write some articles, finding a direction for this blog and trying to breathe. This afternoon I go to CPR class to renew my certification.Who needs sleep when there are more interesting things to do? What is your book about?

Easy too, when I have time. They’re fun to do.

I like these. My favourite doors are the blue of the Cyclades.

Thank you. I ‘m not familiar with the Cyclades. More doors on my list!

What brilliant doors … which town are they in? Perhaps we can visit once we get to Provence.

They are scattered. I added the photos to the door, but I shoot doors and gates wherever I go. Enjoy your trip!

These are very good! Great textures and colour!

Thanks Steve, I appreciate it.

These are so creative! The doors pop with the scenes on them.. I was fooled. I thought that’s how they were painted until I read your captions! Nicely done!

I love to layer images. Thanks for checking them out.

Beautifully done, and a reminder that any surface can become a canvas for some greater purpose

Thank you. I love to collect surfaces to use in layers.

Thank you! Anything old and I’m attracted.

Sorry, the word is your, sometimes my brain and fingers work against my wishes (11 against 1, not fair).
