France: Classical XPan Photographs from Châteaux of the Loire valley

Posted in Hasselblad XPan Photographie - Chronologie by Stimm on July 13, 2010

The Loire Valley: an outstanding cultural landscape of great beauty, containing historic villages and great architectural monuments: the châteaux.  Worth to visit this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here some shots from the year 2001 until now. Every time these châteaux and the surroundings are more then impressive, overburden with architectural motives and saturated with important historical facts. A mixture of art, nature and the taste of European history. Partly the black & white photographs reflecting these sight of a timeless “milestones of human history” and the history seems there to be perceptible. Enjoy, remember or feel the “savoir-vivre”.
