We like to play board games, especially euro games because of their large varieties of themes and game mechanics. One of the earliest games we played was a tile placing game of which the players take turns to draw tiles and place them strategically to build roads, fortified cities and cloisters. The game is called Carcassonne and because of the game, we know there is a city in France called Carcassonne.
The real Carcassonne is really like the board game in 3D. The old fortified city was wonderfully preserved and once we stepped into it, we felt like going back to the medieval age. We had a very comfortable walk around the fortified cities and we actually brought some game pieces (called meeples) and took photo of them there! The only regret we had was we were unable to visit the historical monument there. It was closed because the staff was on strike.
As you can see in the picture, the weather was not good and it was very cloudy. As a result most of my pictures have flat and dull colours. I used deep HDR technique to make the scene a bit more lively.
