SkyWatch Friday: Marseille party sky

©  Richard Schear photo
The sky in the Mediterranean French city of Marseille was full of bright-colored pieces of paper, like giant confetti, during a huge city-wide party at the waterfront in the spring of 2011. There was a parade, there were performances, and there were plenty of people, in costume and in everyday clothing, from all over town as each neighborhood tried to outdo the other in style and pizzazz.

Wonderful shot of Marsaille. That's somewhere I visited long ago and strange to say I don't think I took a single picture there. I regret that when I traveled more, I wasn't into photography. Now that I seldom travel beyond my state I photograph every blade a grass.

I love that picture, Kay, - it is so festive and the colours against the blue sky make it all very gay - very French.

P.S. - love the locomotion song....

I will be landing there on Feb 28 !and I stay with Claudie near Toulouse for a good week. It's not warm there as usual but at least the sun is shining and I will see Palm trees, lol !
You know I first thought it was Eastbourne in England, the buildings look so very much alike. But I had read somewhere that the English built a lot along the French Rivera !
