A friend from Chicago met me at Orly Aiport for a 2-week driving tour of The Loire Valley. A travel agent friend did the itinerary and made the arrangements. Starting in Paris on the day after Bastille Day while the Parisians were still recovering from the revelry, we began the adventure with a few days in the city followed by visits to Chartes Cathedral and several chateaus then back to Paris.
I experimented with Pic-to-Painting, layering, masks, and blend modes with varying degrees of success. Unfortunately, the pictures from the trip were lost to water damage several years ago, so I used stock images (which are MUCH better than the ones I took!)
