Looking Up...Looking Down

When I wander through medieval villages, I'm often looking up. I love to snap photos of half-timbered buildings, bell towers, church steeples, pretty shutters and stone carvings. I'm particularly fond of the little niches you see on the corners and sides of old stone houses that shelter statues of saints. Like this one of Joseph and baby Jesus...at least that's who I think it is. The Virgin is also a popular subject....
But as I wandered through Cajarc last week taking photos of the dog pooping places, I was reminded that I should also be looking down. I was amazed to see this in a tiny square that I've walked through many times and never noticed...
(you thought it was going to be 'crotte de chien,' didn't you?)
