Hello.. I am 70 plus...but still up for trying something new...so here goes.. I have been fortunate for the last 30years to have a base in the Dordogne which my Wife and I visit twice a year.. A lot of my pictures are 'general' Dordogne ...Plus...Dovecotes/Windmills/ and architecture.. My speciality is 'Bromoil' I hope to sneak in an example or two (or three!!) I live near RYE in East Sussex..Southern England..

Visited here myself today. A nice angle and the topiary is manicured beautifully. Like. Regards, Rosa.

A very pleasing picture. Like. Regards, Rosa.

Hello GasGasLex..Glad you like the pic. It was taken quite near where I live..the white topped Longboat was hired for a 4 day round trip, going from near Guildford to the Thames and back.. Regards..7gargoyle

For sure 7gargoyle. I'm very lucky to live in such a wonderful area (and you know personnally what I speaking about...) Greetings. Michel

Hello.. There is clear evidence of a pigeon entry which supports the belief which I still hold.. Where does your granary theory/proof fit in. Might I suggest it would be better if you entered pictures yourself rather than spend your valuable time looking for faults in other peoples efforts.. Regards..7gargoyle..

hello crachinol.. Sorry, there was indeed a mix up!! I have taken the opportunity of looking at all your entries and realise that the comments made were mostappropriate after all!! You really have a nose for pigeonniers!! We have very few of them in the UK and none that I know of in Sussex.. which is one reason (wine/food and the French) being amongst others!!that I spend my time in France tracking them down.. Regards.7gargoyle

J'ai oublié de dire : félicitations pour toutes ces belles photos et particulièrement pour celles consacrées aux pigeonniers. (un L pour chacune ) Amicalement. Michel

Bonjour 7gargoyle,

Je suis vraiment désolé de répondre si tard, mais ce commentaire en réponse au mien m'avait complètement échappé et je le trouve aujourd'hui par le plus grand des hasards...

Mon intervention concernait en fait une petite faute de frappe ayant provoqué une intervertion sur le nom de l'étiquette : il faut écrire "Pigeonnier" et non "Pigeonneir".

Sinon, la différence communément admise entre "pigeonnier" et "colombier" est que le colombier est un bâtiment destiné à l'usage exclusif des pigeons alors que dans un pigeonnier, la partie basse peut avoir une autre usage .

Ma connaissance en anglais est insuffisante pour dire si cette nuance existe dans votre langue.

Encore une fois, désolé pour ce retard et toutes mes amitiés à un semi-Périgourdin.

Michel

I hope I can visit some time. :)

Hello Peter..Glad you liked the Castle, it's a National Trust property close to where I live..We sometimes go there in a friends boat and have a picnic. I note that like me you are a bit of a new boy..Keep at it..Cheers 7gargoyle (Peter!)
