The town that is no more

This photo was taken in Moret-sur-Loing, France, which was about an hour outside Paris. I say was because the town no longer exists, not because it was wiped away by a natural disaster or anything like that, it simply merged with a neighboring town and the new town changed its name to Moret-Loing-et-Orvanne. And apparently this happened before I visited and I did not even know. Anyway, the town is very picturesque and was an inspiration to many famous painters, including Monet, Renoir, and Sisley. The town features a medieval gate at either end of the old town and just outside the gate on the east side there is a river with a nice walkway that provides some stunning views. This photo was taken with a Motorola cell phone that is now several years old. I also took a couple photos with my much more capable DSLR, but somehow the photo taken with my phone came out better. Regardless of the name, this town has a lot of charm, as you can hopefully see from this photo.
