Photographer's Note

Here is a shot of a wayside cross situated near of the Cathedral. It shows the way leading to the medieval district of Rennes. as said by the title, Brittany is a high place of christianity. Lots of famous clergymen from brittany defended religion in the XIXth century while it was threaten by science : La Mennais, Chateaubriand... After the Falloux law of 1850 that allowed the creation of schools, numerous catholic schools were created in the region.

I don't like this monument but I have to said that I like the shot. The sky higlights the cross as something like mystical. The statue in the bottom right hand corner adds something interesting to me.

What do you think ?
