My latest ACEO was inspired by the Abbaye de Fontenay, which I wrote about last week.
|Entrance to Fontenay|
|Dormitory shared by the monks. The bedding was simple and they|
laid on the floor.
|The high ceilings encourage you to look upwards.|
|13th century enamelled floor tiles.|
|Hallway surrounding the cloisters' courtyard.|
|Chapter House where the monks assembled to discuss their readings and other business.|
|The bubbling of a fountain completes the peaceful setting.|
|A wheel captures the force of the river...|
|...which turns a shaft with a cogwheel. The teeth of the cog catch the lever to the left,|
which has the hammer on the other end, and the lever is first lifted and then dropped as each
tooth moves upwards.
|The forge building.|
