Simply Lapopie

"Beyond any other site of Europe or the Americas, Saint-Cirq put the spell on me - the one which binds you forever. I have stopped wanting to be elsewhere. I believe the secret of its poetry is similar to some of Rimbaud's Illuminations and that it is produced by the extremely rare equilibrium of the most perfect difference of its levels.

 

But the listing of all these means is far from exhausting the secret. Every morning, when I get up, I have the impression of contemplating through my window the very best of art, nature and life."

 

-André Breton

 

Lesson Learned: There are absolutely no restaurants open in Lapopie on a Monday afternoon in early January. We saw only 4 other tourists the entire day.

 

In PS, I darkened the sky a bit, warmed the light, and increased the saturation a bit.
