I photographed this lido in Saint-Maurin, a small village in the department of Lot-et-Garonne. The municipal government had filled the pool basin with concrete rubble after they had decided to close the swimming pool down – supposedly to avoid accidents from people falling in. The fence around it is flimsy and easy to surmount. In the summer, weeds grow in between the cracks of the debris.
