Vaison la Romaine - scene in a restaurant

Found a great place to dine in Vaison La Romaine - Provence - France.
Really: the food wat great.
Friendly people as well.
But not that many families with children, the place seemed to attract a certain clientele.
But as I said: the food was good.  Live and let live.

Provence - Séguret - rooftops

Small medieval village on a hill in the provence: Séguret.  Very small in a big way.
Great place.
What are these ornaments?
Hard to believe.
Decorations on a rooftop.  Stone decorations.
The inhabitants of Séguret really have an eye for detail.

What a night: let's not do that again

Morning is not my eldest sons favourite time of day.
He didn't pose for this picture, he didn't know I was taking it.
He does appreciate that his dad experiments with depth of focus, so he gave me permission to post this photo.
Location: Vaison la Romaine, Provence, South of France.

Fance 2004 - Provence - Waternimf

This girl smiled at me sweetly when she passed me on the riverbed.
Lovely passtime canyoning.
Maybe it is not gentlemenlylike of me, but I couldn't resist taking her pictere.
She looked so sweet holding up her skirt to avoid it getting wet.

Do you prefer this view or the previous one?

Fisheye view 1 of the antique theatre in Orange

I cannot make up my mind which version I prefer, this one or the next.
Shame the outside front of this monument is hindered at the base by a row of terrible temporary office boxes.

Lovely serene place, great scenery.

Moment of Rest

Les Baux, Provence, France, busy, busy, busy.
Just close your eyes and pretend you are in a calm relaxing place, meditate...
I should have asked her to teach me.

Rouen

Spent April 10 2004 (our wedding aniversary) in Rouen.
Found a great hotel in Fécamp, on a clifftop, view on the Channel one side, view on Fécamp the other.  Sounds like something out of a Julian Barnes novell, doesn't it?
Well, I can tell you, Fécamp is great, they make the Bénédictine liquour there.
Great monestary church as well.
Drive 10 miles down to Etretat and see the white cliffs with there special shapes.
And Rouen, birthplace of Joan of Arc to top it all.

Normandy 2

Got some remarks on the picture below that it was too dark.
Also that the composition was somewhat confusing, too complex.
Gave it another try.
Oh, by the way, it is not the cathedral, but the Church of Saint-Maclou.
