Near and far

WordPress’ weekly photo challenge for 7 September was on the subject of near and far. I took this photo of purple irises in the foreground and the old walls of the building in the distance in Provence. The walls belong to the Chartreuse de Bonpas, situated just off the Avignon North exit of the autoroute du soleil. We’d been driving past it for years and had never stopped to visit it. It was once a thriving cistercian abbey hosting pilgrims and other visitors from all over France. Today it’s a place of peace and quiet.
