Grey Dey Thursdey - Memories of France 2013



Have you heard
 there's a new linky party

 It's all about
grey
gray
gris


Michelle has listed seven adjectives describing grey
this is the one that resonates with me:

7.  ancient; venerable

a perfect description for these photos I took
in France in June/July this year. 



Ancient silvered/grey wooden beams of the lavage


Everywhere I looked I saw grey
ancient
timeless 






an exquisite  relief in a chateau




a sculpture of the little princesses.


Thank you Michelle for hosting this party
I'm a grey girl too!


Wishing everyone a very happy fun weekend!


À bientôt

be kind to one another

Shane

I learned it here first.☺ Oh I never would have thought gray in France, but I see that I would have been wrong. Wonderful photos perfectly illustrating your point!

Shane, you've captured grey in so many imaginative ways. 'Chocolat' is my favourite.

Beautiful photos of France. I'm sure each one has a story you could tell.

Julia - "Vintage with Laces" said...

These are beautiful greys, dear Shane. You are lucky to have been able to "collect" these in France. The French greys always seem to be especially charming.
Little Jules thanks his Aunty Shane for the warm welcome and the tummy scratches :).
Have a wonderful week!
Hugs,
Julia

I love the wonderful texture and appearance of old stone walls. The stories they could tell . . .

Shane,
Your grey images are not gray (drab) at all. They so say France! I love seeing all of them and cannot choose a favorite.

Hi Shane, when I saw "Mina Loves Art" but saw the signature "Shane" I was a bit confused. I said to myself, I only know one Shane -- who is this new person who acts like they know me? Ha! Interesting that it signs you in like that sometimes. On some blogs, my blog name pops up fine in the comment, and in others, it has some extra characters that shouldn't be in there. Think it has something to do with the apostrophe in my blog name. Strange. Glad to hear all is well with you. Best wishes, Tammy

Gray is a colour I tend to associate with 'old', probably because so many of the old tombstones (which I love) are gray. It's a colour that just says 'history'.

Pamela Gordon said...

These are beautiful examples of the colour grey, Shane. I love beautifully aged wood and stone. Pamela

Marie Lost Bird Studio said...

Hello Dear Shane
I love each and everyone of these magnificent images and your collage too.
These really depict the old greys of France. I particularly love the doorways, stonework, the heavy beams and especially the gorgeous sculpture of the girls - just charming!
Sending warm hugs and love,
Suzy

Hello! I saw your About Me and saw that you were a fellow Francophile! I've been in love with all things French since going there last summer. That's where I found my love for gray too, gray and blue to be specific. I'm a new follower! Looking forward to seeing more Frenchy things from you.
