I was looking through some old photos from when we were in France a few years ago. We took our yacht Fandancer through the French waterways all the way from Le Havre to Port St Louis in the south, and then entered the Mediterranean to sail to Greece. We stopped at many lovely places in France, including a bus trip to St Remy, where Van Gogh spent a lot of his time. This photo was taken as I walked through the old town in St Remy. I happened to look up, and couldn’t work out whether this was an actual person looking out of the window! It turned out that he was for real….
And here’s one more photo of French windows, from the same town.
