And there she was ...

Gert and I were wandering through the beautiful village of Collonges la Rouge when I looked up and noticed this sculpture with the standard stunning old house as a background.

I'd like to return to the village one day, with time to explore and wander some more.

If Oradour-sur-Glane was about remembering the viciousness of a nazi past, then Collonges la Rouge was about peace and beauty, about survival, and the gentle merging of the past with the present.

the long vertical lines from the statue and the old house tower in the background are stunning

Hey thank you. I saw but couldn't have described exactly what it was that captured me about that scene.

The problem of instinctive over reasoned photography ... :)
