This Saturday, I will attend my first real photography class (well, since high school anyway), and in anticipation of the class, I have been looking through photos from our summer trip to determine how I can better define and improve my style. I decided to share some that I personally enjoy; I hope you like them as well.
Cafe du Centre is in the village of Villedieu, not far from Vaison la Romaine. On Sunday evenings, grab a table under the sycamore trees; then order drinks from the cafe and dinner from the pizza truck parked across the street. Si charmant/so charming!
Still in Villedieu, the sun came out just as we were sitting down to enjoy some local wine; the contrast was awesome.
Cherry picking across the road from our rented mas/farmhouse.
THE cheese shop in Vaison. In 2004, cheesemonger Josiane Déal was awarded the Meilleur Ouvrier de France (MOF) or Best Craftsman in France, a medal earned through rigorous exams and practicals. Over 180 categories are included, but aside from cheese, no other women hold the MOF title. ”King’s of Pastry” is a great cinematic peek into the pastry competition.
There will be no sandcastle-building on the beach in Nice…rock-skipping, maybe.
Ahhh, lavender in Provence. Not much else to say.
This smart-looking couple was on a photo shoot, presumably for an anniversary; or maybe an engagement? I guess we never outgrow our love of carousels.
I couldn’t help but notice that this amazing Metro entrance was going completely unnoticed.
As you know, I love, love, love the clock window in the Orsay museum. The people in the shot provide some perspective.
Place your own lock on the Pont des Artes to insure ever-lasting love.
