The following photographs were taken in the south of France in the winter of 2007. They are of the castle wall fortifications of a small village, Muslims selling vegetables in the market, a mill wheel, a Roman stone penis, Montpellier, and the Roman ruins of Nimes.

This is what the French do to their castles: they use them as they would any other thing in the world.

The Roman ruins in Nimes, France date back to 26 BC, and was called the colony of Namausus. Augustus later made the city the capital of Narbonne province when long ramparts and many towers were placed around it. Soon ancient Nimes was attacked by barbarians.

The old buildings of Montpellier, France. This city has an interesting feel. Lady the Tramp and I hitch-hiked here from Anduze and slept outside through the night and froze. Winters in France are cold.
