Photographer's Note

Exactly in the rendez-vous at 18:02 Paris time, or 17:02 in Universal time.
In one hour it will grow dark. I am located opposite the castle of Amboise. Local temperature : 25° C

Town of "Indre et Loire", Amboise is built in the confluence of the Loire and the Masse, at24 km in the East of "Tours".
In year 2000, Amboise counts 11.968 inhabitants whom one calls of Amboisiens. Its castle results from the sumptuous rebuilding by Charles VII of a former fortress (medieval) which rises on an escarpment favourable with defense. Then it will be Louis XI, Charles VIII and François 1st who will increase it.
In 1516, François 1st will make come Léonard de Vinci and will install him in "Clos-Lucé" Manor where he lives there until his death in 1519.
