Photographer's Note

Past time !

Once upon a time there was a walled city in Northern France famous across the land. Many a battle was fought here and by the end of the Hundred Years War, its chateau lay in ruins. Weakened further by a plague and fire, the city slept for centuries until an artist, enchanted by its cobbled streets and storybook houses, brought it back to life. He adorned it with roses and transformed the chateau remains into an exquisite garden. That was 1901 and the artist was the post-impressionist Henri Le Sidaner.
Today, the city -- Gerberoy &endash; is one of the "100 most beautiful villages in France" and protected as a classified site.
