Épinal: Scenes While Signing at the Festival Imaginales

My French name collection is growing.  I need people to write their
names for me when I'm abroad, because even when the names are familiar, the
pronunciations never are. Someone will say an incomprehensible name
 to me, I'll be like, "WOAH!" and ask them to write it down, then I'll look at
what they've written and feel rather silly, because I have
 three friends and a sister with that name (for example).

 Strange creatures…

on stilts. And yes, that guy on the right

 is a member of Napoleon's army.
