This week's photohunt is painted. I remembered this often photographed door in beautiful village of Roussillon in France. Roussillon is in the Luberon area of Provence. I thought of the village not only for this beautiful door but also because it was situated in one of the largest ochre quarries. The town has created a variety of artists. But what appeals to many people are the wide varieties of red, yellow and brown earth towns that color the buildings in the town. Many of these are accented with lovely Provencal blue or hunter green. Art abounds throughout the town.
We visited this "Plus Beaux Village" in October 2007. We loved the colors of the buildings. Here are a few more examples of the beauty of the village.
