What’s Up There,

The Wanderlust Gene posts wonderful photo-montages of exotic places.  This morning, her theme was What’s Up There, so I had a go at doing something similar from the ever-fascinating Carcassonne.

I have a passion for the myriad shapes of roof throughout France, and specially in Paris, so I’ll wrap this up with a couple of French haiga:

Louvre toits haiga
Under the roof of the Louvre remains unforgettable glory,
but on the roof as well, there are unbelievable forms

Louvre Chariot Haiga

    I vaguely remember this, Viv. 🙂 That’s twice in the past 2 days I’ve been reminded of Meredith! Her posts were a thing of beauty. I must visit and see if she’s returned yet. She had a newer blog, didn’t she but I’m not sure if it’s current?

    It’s a place I always wanted to visit, Viv. I guess there’s still time. Love your montage. I thought it was going to be a gallery when I clicked on it, so I have no idea how you did this. Well done.

      I did it in Picassa, where, all my pictures are stored from both computers. They give you the option of making a slide show or montage, with your choice of spacing between pics, and the chance to move them around, choose the central pic etc. I hope to get better at it with practice.


  5. I spent three days at Carcassonne this past summer during the crazy heat but it didn’t diminish its grandeur and majesty. I particularly like your haiku in French of the Louvre, very aptly put. 🙂


  6. Oh Viv – now them’s roofs! Really great to see your fabulous Carcassonne roofs – Brava! And in French, how beautiful your haiko sounds 🙂 I’m flattered, and so happy you decided to post these 🙂


  7. Love the juxtaposition of old and new in that last one.
