Photographer's Note

In one of my earlier postings, I included this photo as a WS. Now, I have decided to do a main posting of it, in order to include it in BRETON TRADITIONAL COSTUMES.
These people were invited to our strawberry festival in Plougastel, and they come from Spézet, a village of about 1900 inhabitants, in the centre of Finistère, in " the Black Mountains".
Breton "mountains" are not very high (384m) at the highest point. because they date back to the Tertiary. But the Bretons are proud of them nevertheless.
The highest peak of the "Black Mountains" is "Roc Toullaëron"(326m), not far from Spézet.
The region is renouned for its slate quarries, and the commune itself for its beautiful chapel and calvary " N D du Crann ", and for its "chateau de Trévarez" for which I am adding a WS.( This is actually situated in the neighbouring commune: St Goazec )
I am also adding some WS of variations of the costume.
