His death colored my thoughts through the rest of France. When visiting the large chateaus, I thought about how most of us live simple lives which will be forgotten in a generation or two. Most of us will never become famous. Even though we live the best we can, history will quickly erase us.
Somehow I found myself photographing lots of cemeteries for the rest of the trip. Was that my meditation on history and death?
