France is changing but there are still reminders of times gone by. There is the obvious like the churches and old buildings but there are other reminders of the past.
Some are literally fading fast, such as the advertisements that were painted onto the walls of buildings close to main roads. Many of these are now becoming indecipherable. I am going to try photographing some of them and then try to enhance the colors to artificially bring them back to their former glory. I will present you with the unadulterated picture and the enhanced version as except in special circumstances like the one I am describing, I am against the use of too much photoshop.
Also there are old buildings or structures some of which are being preserved and others which are falling by the wayside. Things like village water pumps, corn stores, lavoirs, halles, pigeonniers, factories and abri de cantonniers.
Going back many years ie 4,000 to 7,000 there are Dolmen of which there are quite a few in this region
