All of the pages/images that begin '03CN' were shot with a standard,
non-zoom Minilux. The pages that begin '03CR' were mainly shot with an old
folding 6x9 camera from the 1950's using 120 roll film. These haven't been
sharpened - my PC is too slow when sharpening 100 Mbyte images :-). The
pages from Le Pechereau onwards were shot with an M6.

I used standard Fuji Superia 100 for all the '03CN' shots. All the '03CR'
shots were Fuji Velvia 100 - either 120 or 35mm.

The things that I learned were, the Minilux has a fantastic lens, an ancient
medium format camera produces amazing transparencies.

Wow! Beautiful.  Unfortunately all the photos that I took in that town in
1957 and 1959 were on Ektachrome and have badly faded and color shifted.  I
wish I could have chosen the slower Kodachrome.
