the moles of the castle and the visitors

Maximilian and Charlotte were able to enjoy their beautiful castle for only four years or so before leaving for Mexico, where Maximilian was crowned Emperor Maximilian of Mexico, only to be executed by firing squad in 1867.
Legend has it that Charlotte, mad with grief, still wanders in the park calling his name.

Their home, a splendid example of an aristocratic 19th century residence, retains all its original interior furnishings.

The beauty of the castle and the park, together with the sad and romantic story of the young imperial couple, still fascinates tourists all over the world and has made it one of the most visited destinations in Europe.

Superb mono image. Great use of negative space and tones within the square format. Very different too.
The girl in the middle makes the image for me. I don't even mind the dustbin on the left!Smile
In fact, the more I look at this the more I like it. Hence my award
