No accounting for taste





This building must have looked something in its heyday, with the blue shutters and that gaudy ad. Reputedly (via Wikipedia) Dubonnet is a favourite beverage of:

- The French Foreign Legion;
- Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, who liked gin and Dubonnet: 30% gin, 70% Dubonnet with a slice of lemon under the ice. She once noted before a trip, "...I think that I will take two small bottles of Dubonnet and gin with me this morning, in case it is needed..."; and
- Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, who also likes a Dubonnet and gin before lunch every day (allegedly).

I've often wondered when these painted ads date from. This one appears to be signed (bottom right corner, continuing over the door lintel) with a series of dates - earliest date I can read is 1955 and the latest is 1965, I think. If you squint, you can just about make out an earlier layer with the slogan "DUBO, DUBON, DUBONNET" written diagonally.

Thanks to photocillin for the title inspiration.

I have been able to upload my photos from my camera to my iPad and then e-mail them to flickr. It seems that every day new photo processing apps appear for the iPad. This little cottage shot was edited in PhotoForge- my favorite so far.
