Brittany 2012 : Brittany 12_01 : Grandpa's Painting

Another old favourite, my grandfather's painting of city hall in La Fleche. La Fleche is a dozen kilometers south of Le Man and Grandpa had retired there from the railway. He painted with some skill, as did others in the family, including Dad. I failed miserably at art and later took refuge in photography. I remember as a kid, one summer, walking with my parents in La Fleche. We were crossing that bridge when I had a revelation. I shouted, "There is Grandpa's tableau!". I had not known that it was a real place but that it fit in with Les Trois Mousquetaires that I was reading at the time. I was boggled.
