Even though the Chateau was closed for renovations (seemingly indefinitely), it was still nice wandering around this small town in Provence, France. I took this photo, carefully framing it to avoid the cars parked in front of the clocktower. Then I turned and walked into an artist’s gallery just behind me. The first thing I saw was a painting of the same scene with almost an identical composition.

During my stay in Aix-en-Provence I went on a drive to number of small villages nearby. I stopped in this village, which has a chateau at the top of the hill. Unfortunately, the Chateau was closed for renovations but I still enjoyed wandering around the town.
