Monday is 'Missing Paris Day' ~Loire



























Shot in the Loire Region of France outside one of the chateaux (Azay le Rideau, I believe). Picturing myself there now, walking through rooms teeming with history, the air heavy with the dust of mingled sighs long since expired; lives of people and customs long since past.
