    Mid November I went to Orleans, to be at the festival de Cannes 1939. Yes I know, it could appear amazing, but in fact, the Creator of this festival was Jean Zay, minister of culture at the time, and he was born in Orleans. The goal was to compete with the Mostra of Venise which was run by fascist authorities and to present movies that have a democratic feeling. Due to the begening of the war, the festival was canceled.
    But the list of the films selected exists and we had the Opportunity to see them at the cinema and the theater,during six days.
    If some of these films are still well known some of them are very rare seen only by researchers when they are Lucky.
    As for me,I appreciate to watch ""la grande solution" of Hugo Haas the Tchecoslovaquian representant, even though this country has already desapeared at the time. Another experience was to watch the Dutch film "petit gamin" (boffie, in dutch ) By Detlef Sierck ((Douglas Sirk when he reached Hollywood). The film was projected in Dutch version without subtitles with a live translation by a Dutch-French speaker. Surprising.

    What a beautiful church you have shared with all of us, as well as a truly wonderful place to enjoy an espresso!

    This is a wonderful place with lots of historical charm, I can see it from your images.

    Thank you for sharing these.

    Oh Yves, this is fascinating, the magnificent carved figures, and of course I am particulary attracted to the buildings amongst the rocks! That last photo is spectacular. All this and a tall lighthouse too!

    Sorry, Don't know why there are footnotes to boy names and fuel stations. A Postimage gift I guess!

    I spent a week in Brittany at extreme west of France in the department (county) of Finistère to visit the « enclos paroissiaux », typical sites of the area, which can be translated by parish closes.

    They were erected during the 16th and 17th, mostly in this part of Brittany, when this province had its economical « age d'or » due to the maritim commerce and the production of linen and hemp which were exported all over Europe.

    A enclos paroissial is a churchyard located in a little city. A low wall of stone (usually granit) delimit the space. The entrance is a ceremonial arch giving onto an ossuary and a calvery, before reaching the church. The calveries are often a master piece of popular scupture mixing the Christ's life and the stories of the local saints.

    Here is a design :
