Favorite French Things Friday - Architectural Details - Religious

I walked the villages of Provence filled with a sense of wonder and humility.  There was something humbling about the sheer beauty, history and detail in the buildings that surrounded me as I walked.  It seemed that every few minutes I'd look up and there would be the Virgin Mary or The Madonna and Child looking down at me.  I was amazed as these figures comforting me as I walked were not on churches or other religious buildings, they were on the facades of private homes and businesses.  The home above simply made me sigh in wonder. To me, this is beauty.

Au revoir, Mitty
