Photographer's Note

Welcome to the "valley of willows", at the top of the estuary, where the sea air meets the light of the countryside, where, "miracously", a hundred years ago blew the breath of inspiration.

Pont-Aven is a place to see, and it invites you with all its charm, with its shop windows and galleries and with its memories of Gaugain and Emile Bernard.

Cross the bridge, wander in the streets, ascending and descending, go over the footbridges, enjoy the fresh air in the harbour, just stroll around.

This picture is taken in Pont-Aven, a beautiful place in Brittany (Bretagne), where a lot of people are painting or drawing a nice scene. It was very busy with painters, when I was there, but I know why...
