Art in France: Street Life, 2011-12

I may be stretching it a bit with this post (the rest of the posts this week will be art from the Louvre, architecture and some of my sketches) but I think sometimes when you're visiting a new place, you're just so taken with the different sights that all you see is beauty.
By the way - one thing I forgot to mention in yesterday's post was that in the shot of the hot chocolate spoons, you'll notice the spoons on the left have a plastic vile inserted into the chocolate. They're filled with rum and Grand Marnier!

Wow! Your daughter has quite an eye for composition. I really love all of those shots. Ahhh, looks like such a fun time. If your daughter is a reader (or you if you like teen books) tell her to read Anna and the French Kiss. It is SO cute. :) Your pics totally remind me of it.

Hi!
J'arrive de Marrakech et je découvre avec ravissement l'ensemble des publications que j'avais manqué.
Ces toutes dernières m'amènent simplement dans une ville que j'affectionne particulièrement, Aix... Je m'y promène très souvent...
Merci pour ces belles photos et bon séjour à vous...
Gros bisous
