One of my favorite things to do as I wander through the old parts of French villages and towns is to peek into open gates and down dark passages. I'm often delighted with what I find. In Cahors this dark passage and its open door led to another tiny ruelle with red doors pointing the way to more ancient buildings.
As Laury and I wandered along another old Cahors rue lined with shops, I glanced to my right and between two buildings, I saw a passage leading to an enclosed courtyard. It was empty except for this large circular planting that anchored a modern art installation.
I turned to exit after snapping this image and spied one of my favorite photo subjects....laundry!
You just never know what you'll spy when you peek into tucked away places.
