The Magic Lantern

A while ago passing by car through a village I spotted this lantern down a side street and vowed to go back to take its’ portrait. Told that it was attached to a good patisserie I had visions of a magnificent old fashioned French establishment with glass shelves groaning under the weight of pastel coloured macaroons, eclairs, tartes aux fruits and other sweet fancies.  Sadly it was just a very ordinary modern bakery with modern fittings and a few uninspiring baguettes on offer, the only mouth-watering thing about it being the stunning lantern outside.  I took my photo anyway and decided it was probably just as well for my waistline that reality and imagination don’t always correspond.
