One of my favourite areas of France. Lovely shots and especially love the dappled effect in the second one. Happy SSS.

I love the captures of your European visits. As I have noted before, the old world architecture styled over hundreds of years - not at all full of straight lines, but with arcs and curves that look wonderful. To travel away from home to a place of architectural artistry is great!

Arches, arches, everywhere--and you photographed them with flair!


I once had a shadow—or did she have me?
My shadow and I could never agree.
I would say something, she’d say the reverse;
Our arguments flared, my lips I would purse,
Refusing to speak to her anymore—
So my shadow got up and marched out the door!
I have not seen her from that day to this—
That’s one stubborn shadow I surely don’t miss!

A lovely series of shadows! I could happily get lost in them if I had the chance to wander around there! Enjoy the rest of your weekend Kay :)

I bet that shade will come in handy on really hot summer days! What a pretty little town with such distinct architecture. Thanks for stopping by at mine. Enjoy the first day of summer. It's hot, hot, hot here right now!
