We saw this when driving around Blois looking for a park near a pharmacy on Wednesday (Ha! Not a chance!!). I commented to Simon that I wished I’d had my camera out (it was in the boot) so I could have taken a shot of the steps.

I took this photo during the Saint Nicolas fair last week so could stand in the main road. I took other photos a bit closer, with no people standing in the wrong places but the perspective is no good. I was rather disappointed because I waited a while for people to move (and took a good photo at someone’s request as well!).
