The Dormant Village

Pure coincidence led me to spend the night in the small town of Béhuard, located on an island in the Loire. Arriving late in the evening it seemed completely abandoned, and when our host left us it was as if the last echoes of the last footsteps of the last man that ever was disappeared into the night with him.

Come morning the town was just as devoid of life, but wandering up and down its cobbled streets I noticed small details testiment to the fact that someone did care for this little island and that perhaps, just perhaps, it was only sleeping, lying dormant in wait for spring and summer and for it’s inhabitants to come back to it again…
