"Your posts have featured a lot of change and construction lately. There's this post and the tractor (loved that picture). Are you in a mood of renovation?"
I am in anything but a mood of renovation (although I know someone who is -- or at least had better be.)
I watch, intrigued, as icons of Rodez's past move into the 21st century.
My first photo shoot of the changes taking place at the Hôtel Broussy gave a general idea of this major modification, but two months later I had to return to snap images of the grey underbelly of change.
This time a worker came up to talk to me. He was rightly curious as to why I was photographing this:
-Oui, je trouve ça fascinant...
-Pour vous peut-être -- pas pour nous!
-Je veux bien vous croire...avec le froid qu'il fait...
-On espère juste qu'il tient le choc!
