Yes, you are correct! I was thinking scary in a jack the ripper kind of way so you knew exactly what I meant.

À quand un thread sur Saint-Étienne? Cette ville industrielle m'a toujours intrigué, d'autant plus qu'un de mes groupes de musique favori vient de la (mickey3d)...
I've got a pile on my hard drive from my visit in 2006.

I'll try and post them soon.

Yesterday I spent a big part of my Sunday to shoot St Etienne, about 170 pics, to answer to PhilippeMtl's request, but I'm really waiting for your post , it will be an interessant way to know how visitors feel this town, what you like or not, an outside view will be appreciated So please post a thread, it's a good idea and in the meantime I'll try to sort and organize mine.

I will do. I spent a few days there last year. I have some family in St. Etienne, I like the city very much, I will dig out and sort through the photos.

C'est une tres joli ville. C'est domage que les stéphanois non pas battu les Lyonais hier...

Be still my heart. It's all about the castles. Thank you for sharing your pics, especially the tipsy alleyways and light filled arches. Fantastical.

I am still fascinated by Périgord. thanks for the pics.

the best view of the area was from the little town of Domme.

“Actually it must have been a paradise for many thousands of years. I believe it must have been so for the Cro-Magnon man, despite the fossilized evidences of the great caves which point to a condition of life rather bewildering and terrifying. I believe that the Cro-Magnon man settled here because he was extremely intelligent and had a highly developed sense of beauty. I believe that in him the religious sense was already highly developed and that it flourished here even if he lived like an animal in the depths of the caves. I believe that this great peaceful region of France will always be a sacred spot for man and that when the cities have killed off the poets this will be the refuge and the cradle of the poets to come. I repeat, it was most important for me to have seen the Dordogne: it gives me hope for the future of the race, for the future of the earth itself. France may one day exist no more, but the Dordogne will live on just as dreams live on and nourish the souls of men.”

Henry Miller, 1958, in 'The Colossus of Maroussi'
Too bad I don't have a view from Domme like yours
(sorry for the delay, I didn't find time till today to continue this thread)

But here is the little town of Domme (my only pics):
