An opportunity to show another photo of Célestine
It is very rare to find a view in France that isn't spoiled by power or telephone lines, which makes taking great photos difficult. Ofen you take what you hope to be a good photo before you see the power and/or phone lines. These days I am so used to seeing cables everywhere that I don't notice them until I come to prepare the photo for use.
I quite like the photo below, but the various posts and lines get in the way. I won't claim I didn't see them when I took the photo, but the brain seems to ignore them really sucessfully - until they appear in the photo.
Luckily, there is a solution. Of course, we have all known for years never to take a photo at face value, but if you know how to do it, technology has now made the process quicker and easier.
Talking of Célestine, she is still with the garage for about another week. The fuel tank has been drained, cleaned, treated and an epoxy lining applied. It takes about 8 days for the epoxy to go off, and then she can come home.
The garage looks awful big without her.
