Photographer's Note

Avignon is famous for it's bridge that was the subject of a very old French song. But there are two other important tourists attractions in the city, the palace of the popes and the Avignon theatre festival.

The papal palace (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palais_des_Papes) was occupied by popes fleeing unrest and insecurity of Rome.

When I got out of my visit the palace, I was confronted with the bustle of the other tourist attraction, the Avignon theatre festival. It was on a fence adjacent to the Palace of the Popes that was advertise the differents theatricals showings. (http://www.festival-avignon.com/)
