La lune etc.

I have more than 200 photos of pottery and houses in the potters' village of La Borne. My friend Sue and I drove over there in early June and spent an afternoon wandering around and taking pictures. The sheer number of photos is overwhelming, and I don't know what to do with them. I'll surely post some, but I don't know what I have to say about them.

Meanwhile, the moon is spectacular again this morning. I tried to take some photos of it using my long-zoom (30x) camera, but the light was dim and I'm not sure I'm very happy with the result. Here's one anyway FWIW.

And as I was leaning out of the bedroom window to take photos of the moon, I thought I heard a cat meowing. It didn't sound like Bertie the black cat. And it wasn't. When I stopped looking at the camera screen, I saw the cat in this photo out in the yard. I thought it might be our neighbor's cat, which we (meaning Walt) took care of for a week about a month ago. But Walt looked at the photo and said he doesn't think it is the cat named Chana. So I have no idea where this cat came from, or where it went.

Yesterday I was messing with my camera and an SD card I was having trouble with. As a test, I snapped the shot above of our living/dining room, terrace, and kitchen. We are having very hot weather right now, at least by Saint-Aignan standards. Yesterday's high was about 28ºC (mid-80s in ºF) and this morning's low is above 18ºC (mid- to upper-60s in ºF). We are approaching official canicule (heatwave) temperatures. I'm not complaining because it's a dry heat, but it's supposed to turn stormy over the weekend.

One last photo... A stylized view of yesterday morning's "moonset" — based on the photo I posted yesterday.


  1. What an interesting set of photos today! I enjoy the color in all of them (and the kitty), but especially love to see your house.

  2. What Judith said and I love the moon shot.

  3. Enjoyed seeing your guest kitty and the view to your patio.

  4. The "MoonShot" is Great.... as it sets the mood of the day... Glorious


What's on your mind? Qu'avez-vous à me dire ?
