Though we travel the world to find the beautiful

we must carry it with us or we find it not

blue shutters amid cobbled laneways ......

~   Le Barroux : Vaucluse Provence  ~

I loved pottering along cobbled lanes in this charming
medieval village - it was after le dejeuner
and local residents were all taking their afternoon nap
not a soul in sight except us tourists

storm clouds over cider fields ......


near the little French village of Trelat
storm clouds were gathering over fields of
blossom laden apple orchards.

oh! la la ......

Place Vendome is one of the more elite
shopping areas in Paris with names like
 Cartier Chaumet and Chanel
Of course if you're looking for a luxury wrist-watch
you can pop into this exclusive little Boutique
and choose for yourself a Breguet time-piece
or do what I did and just enjoyed watching the fashionable clientele
arriving and departing.

blue skies over love-lock bridge ....

soft blue Parisian skies over the Pont-des-Arts
or as more commonly now known as
the love-lock bridge.
Thousands of lovers engrave their names on padlocks
declare their undying love to each other
then throw the key into the depth of La Seine
ain't love sweet !

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.
