Photographer's Note

Albi is a major town in the Midi-Pyrenees region situated on the Tarn River. Upstream from Albi is the Tarn Gorge, which I have yet to visit, but looks very interesting for outdoor activities when the weather improves :-)

The picture is taken from the Toulouse-Lautrec museum which is situated in the old town, near the cathedral. Now...call me slow, but I only recently realised that the famous painter, whose paintings hang in the museum, came from this region and that his name is a combination of the City of Toulouse and the Village of Lautrec - which is just south of Albi. His family owned a large amount of land in this region from which the name derives. So, not only did I have some fun taking pictures, but also learnt something new...isn't that what life is all about? :-)
