Photographer's Note

A wide-angle photo taken last Autumn, while standing on Toulouse's Pont Neuf, looking west towards the Saint-Cyprien 'quartier'. The building on the near left is the Hotel Dieu St-Jacques, the headquarters of Toulouse's hospitals and centre of the European Institute of Telemedicine. Beyond it can be seen the green-ish dome of the Hpital de la Grave, which is three times the size of the Hotel Dieu, standing on the left bank of the Garonne beside the Pont Saint-Pierre. Just beyond that bridge lies a small 'waterfall' in the shallow reaches of the Garonne, where water is diverted to generate hydro electricity in the turbines of the Bazacle - the Bazacle is the pale yellow building visible beneath the second span of the bridge from the right. On this cold day, the scudding Autumn clouds made such a reflection in the river that it seemed like Toulouse was afloat in the sky.
