The industrial, the non-descript and the faded - a walk around Dompierre-sur-Besbre

From a walk around the outskirts of Dompierre-sur-Besbre, a town in the Allier Department of the Auvergne, within a few kilometers of the River Loire, capturing the mundane, non-descript, faded and industrial.

Unusually, I captured all images on my mobile phone. Firstly I realise that I now own a phone with a top class camera (for a phone), secondly I was expecting rain and did not want to carry anything more than the phone and finally if I carry anything more I have a dismal record of making any money from serious photography in France. Besides which I am on holiday and my serious gear needs a holiday too.

All images added to the new Auvergne - Allier gallery at my site.
