Just a Few Photos I Like
I did not place these images with any particular forethought so don't read anything into the juxtapositions. These photos are from the week that Mathilde was visiting us. The nuns were at a brocante fair in the town of Fanjeaux, not too far from Mirepoix. I believe the mannequin bust is also from that brocante fair. Mathilde is posing next to another mannequin in a set of stocks. Mathilde appears very pensive as if trying to duplicate the facial expression of the poor gentleman. The third photo of a mannequin (maybe there is a theme here) is in Carrcassonne pitching t-shirts. Now, below the little fellow in his Carcassonne t-shirt are a couple of pictures of Monstegur. The purpose of the photos is to highlight the position of the fortress on the volcanic pug, and to make you wonder at the effort it took to build it and how difficult it was to attack. Nancy is shown taking pictures at Monstegur and there is a shot from the square in the town of Montreal, which is near Fanjeaux, and is looking northeast off towards Carcassonne.
