Camargue is already a slightly strange place with its pools of stagnant waters and strong smelling marshes. Sometimes it's had to believe that these utterly still pools are just a few short miles off the Mediterranean gulf and even reaching it. Yesterday was a bizarre mix of Feria fever and gypsy tradition on the Mediterranean seaboard.

Listen to the church bells of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer from Saturday afternoon 170_51.wav

Inside the church in crypt is Saint Sara who is brought out every year for a large gathering of Romas from round the world.

Despite the afternoon heat it is hotter inside the crypt than outside.

The corrida then and now

In the candle picture, the candles seem to have a life of their own. Slightly inclined, dripping, with arched back, or lowered head - each a luminous symbol of the prayers and devoted offering of those who have lit them.

Thank you for sharing this and more.
