I think it is Wednesday. Monday we all went to Montpellier and pottered about. I did not take any photos. Tuesday three of us drove East to Les Baux and I took loads of photos. Les Baux is a hilltop village on the edge of the Camargue with a strongly fortified castle and a spectacular view over the plains to the west.
View from the castle
The castle itself with a trebuchet to the left, used for throwing heavy stones at the besiegers.
They demonstrate these at the weekends.
The village is built from stone and is very higgledy-piggledy. Houses are clearly built into each other. Twenty years ago it was full of artists. Now it is full of tourists and tourist shops. I don't imagine anyone lives there in the winter. There were some art exhibitions.
As far as I could make out, these works were made by painting on canvas, then putting on a tight layer of thin plastic, pleating it as you go. Then painting the plastic, then applying heat to the plastic so you get holes through which you can see the canvas underneath. All the pictures were large at least five foot square.
I don't usually like double hollyhocks but I make an exception for these.
