Parting glances... Here are some things you might see when you walk around in Montrésor for a few hours. First, a knight, or at least a well-armed soldier. I guess the French word for knight — chevalier — is appropriate because...
...another thing you might well see is a cheval like this one. A horse was grazing along the south bank of the Indrois on the day in May when I was there in 2006.
And you'll of course see doors and windows. Des portes et des fenêtres. The door on the right would have to be in Touraine and date back to the time of Ronsard. Cueillez dès aujourd'hui les roses de la vie, he wrote. How many of us love to take photos of doors, windows, and shutters (volets) in French villages and towns? I raise my hand.
Like this one. I took close-up photos of the chain and lock on this door, but I'll spare you. The door surrounded by roses (above) and the door under the arch (left) are both in buildings that are part of the château complex. See below.
I still have a lot of photos that I've taken in Montrésor over the past 15 years and could post, but I'm going to start moving on. Maybe I should choose another town or village and do another series.
