OK so if you like one of the photos you can buy it but do not download it for free as it is against copyright. to deter free downloads I am adding my logo to the photos . You can also purchase my photographs at Alamy.co.uk. to do this visit their site and then if you type in Poitou Charentes you will see thousands of photos and some will be mine so if you type in Lavoir then you will get far fewer photos and then you will be able to find mine and if you click on to my name then you will see all my photos , a lot of which are from Poitou Charentes.
Incidentally a Lavoir is a communal washing area beside a river which is where the women would gather in days gone by to do the washing and gossip.
