16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
The Gartempe River in medieval Montmorillon, France

In September 2018, I traveled to the medieval book town of Montmorillon, France, to view a home I am purchasing there. After arriving at the train station, I walked the short distance to town. This was the first bridge I needed to cross on the way to city center - and my first impression of the town. This image confirmed for me the magic and ethereal beauty of this town that felt lost in time.
