Photographer's Note

This is the 1st of a short series of shots taken in the small town of Oradour-sur-Glane. On the 10th of June 1944 soldiers of the Der Führer Regiment of the 2nd Waffen-SS Panzer Division Das Reich marched into the town and killed a total of 642 men, women and children. The town has been left to slowly decay as both a memorial to the dead and a reminder of what lays just below the surface of our civilisation.
I kept things simple using just my 12-24mm and my old soft 20mm Nikkor.
