Most of our time in France was spent at the gîte working with the staff of our French partner, Eglise de la Brie. However, I had an hour or so each morning to wander the town after sunrise and before breakfast. The wonderful part of these walks was that I pretty much had the town to myself. I must admit that it was pretty wonderful to have my morning walk in a beautiful walled city in northern France.

My eye was certainly drawn to the two structures that rise above the town, a church and a watchtower. But, there was also a trove of other beautiful sights, primarily the doors and windows of the houses in the village. I probably walked every street in the small town over the four morning strolls that I took. I took quite a few shots of the rustic architecture that I encountered.

This blue door obviously caught my eye. It certainly seems to have been in place for decades or centuries. The blue color only accentuated its beauty. I hope you enjoy the image.
