Photographer's Note

Le Moulin d'Alphonse Daudet - Alphonse Daudet's Mill

In this mill Alphonse Daudet wrote his famous "Lettres de Mon Moulin". (I found one short story in English: Click here if you want to know more about Daudet's style.)

---------------------------------

"Et maintenant, comment voulez-vous que je le regrette, votre Paris bruyant et noir? Je suis si bien dans mon moulin! C'est si bien le coin que je cherchais, un petit coin parfumé et chaud, à mille lieues des journaux, des fiacres, du brouillard!..."

"And now, how could I regret your Paris, black and noisy? I enjoy the life in my mill! It is so much the place I was looking for, full of scents and warm, a thousand miles of the newspapers, the coaches, the smog!..." (From Lettres de mon moulin)
