Though we travel the world to find the beautiful

we must carry it with us or we find it not

Vincent ........




~    blue skies over Provence   ~
 
these captures were taken in the back-yard of
St-Paul de Mausole Asylum near St Remy
where Vincent Van Gogh convalesced in 1889
 
During that time he painted many beautiful landscapes
and as you can see in the pic above the lavender
is just starting to colour up and I can imaging Vincent
standing at his window above with paintbrush at the ready.

rainy day at the Pompidou ......



~    Pompidou Centre    Paris   ~
 
It was a rainy day when I visited the Pompidou Centre
in search of a much advertised photographic Exhibition
The queue was long but the view from the top level
was worth the waiting .... I filled in the time
by admiring this wonderful vista of my favourite city

Rue Montorgueil ......





friends chatting along this wonderful foodie street
most probably discussing what to buy for dinner
a little cheese a little chocolate a little wine
oh! and mustn't forget
 baguettes and little French tartlets

Spring-Time in Brittany ............

 
Brittany is one of the prettiest area's in rural France
especially at spring-time with delicate blossom trees
laden in soft pink and white petals
under-pined with snowdrops, crocuses
and elegant tall stemmed tulips
