Photographer's Note

While exploring north of my daughters place in Albertville on our tour, we came across the butterfly Museum in Faverge. The old castle had been used as an orphanage for girls. To support themselves, they raised silk worms and made silk cloth. The museum was closed but we could walk around the tower in the courtyard and view the renovations taking place. The free access to many of the areas and sights in France made the trip memorable especially since this was not the tourist season.
I felt the gray of the building and tower blended well with the snow and rock of the mountain behind them. The mountains and water of Savoie and Haute Savoie were especially beautiful this time of year.
