... & walls & buildings ...

When you walk through a village or a town or a city in France the thing i always notice is the colour of the buildings. I'm sure if you look hard enough you'll find sky scrapers, & concrete & ugly but i don't look hard enough & i just see those wonderful pale coloured homes, or red & orange & other sun inspired mediterranean houses. Apartments with little balconies or banks with mint coloured shutters. I love the colours of the buildings & every time i see them i wonder if i could build a home like that where ever it is we end up. I love the contrasting colours & the fact that they all look like they've seen a whole host of history. I like the tile roofs, or laundry strung between the buildings. Winding alleyways & the colour everywhere. There's nothing grey & dreary about France it's just, in my eyes, totally perfect! 


  1. Great stuff chica :)
    P.S. I am still waiting...

  2. I love architecture and all the things you have described. I love Washington, DC's architecture. It is gorgeous! I also love Charleston, SC gorgeous homes, with the pretty colors, gardens and porches. I am always drawn to the beauty of a city and not the ugliness, as well. It's the artist and photographer in us. Always looking to find something wonderful to capture.

  3. I love all the pictures you share...you make me feel as if I've been there! I hope someday that I'll actually get to visit France :)
