Photographer's Note

SAINT EMILION (Friday 1 April 2005, 8 PM local)
A name which evokes the famous vineyard which became the first wine territory with being registered with the world inheritance of UNESCO. A right reward because of the beauty of the landscapes of vines and for the quality of its red wines.
A sight of the medieval city built in amphitheatre on a calcareous hill. Under the village, dug in the tender rock were arranged catacombs, a church monolith (9-12th century) and tens of galleries of which some are used as wine storehouses with barrels.
And in WS a sight of the bell-tower whereas the bell sounds 8 blows! One sunny Friday (23°C)... but obviously at 8 p.m., the sun is a little low...
I chose this place (I live to 8 km...) as photographic contribution to the Theme that Aleksei (Kolesn) had the good idea to propose on TE... history to put "water at the mouth"... euh, sorry ! to put "the wine at the mouth" !
Regards.
Jean.

PS : This Theme is for me a first... I took this photograph with my very new numerical camera ; -))
