Life in the heart of France
12th July 2015
Last year's Artisan Market in Le Dorat was a wash-out - rain lashed down all day. Luckily this year's weather was much better!
The town looks at its best, colourful, clean and tidy with the narrow streets of the old quarter lined with craft stalls.
A pop-up smithy. Boy, he must have been a bit warm, hammering iron in front of that fire.
There's always a bloke with a microphone, relaying info and opinion through the PA all over town. (Shut up!)
The basketmaker's wares spread out, next to a collection of classic cars, lovingly polished and gleaming, admired by many.
Mum listened to the brass band. I never know why the band members stand in a circle facing each other, rather than the audience. I noticed their playing has improved over the last few years... they're really pretty good.
