As part of a workshop in Provence in September of 2010, we went to Les Baux, France to attend a medieval festival and photograph the many sights.
Les Baux is the site of the original bauxite mines which have become….
Wine tasting cellars.
The town was decked out in colorful banners and flags contrasting with the bright blue sky. And the remains of the old castle formed the skyline.
Many young maidens were enjoying the festivities
protected by a strong military presence; longbowmen
and a crossbowman (with an anachronistic chronometer)
who was the knight in shining armor for one of our photographers.
Photographers, photographers everywhere!
A troupe of musicians and a dancer provided entertainment.
