People and Places.

Because I don't feel like writing much and because I want to go out and get sunburned properly, here are just a few pictures - and words that go with them, of course. Part of our yesterday.




Geeks, Ensues la Redonne.

 


Picture-taking, Arles.


Hotel Le Belvedere, Arles.


Andre in hotel Le Belvedere, Arles.

Andre, La Dolce Vita, Arles.


River Rhone, Igor, Andre, Olivier and Frederic, the maître of hotel Le Belvedere, Arles.

Have some of me, Arles.


Roman aqueduct close to Fontvieille. Oh and that poppy. :)


Hat by Dominic cuboz , Tshirt by Connor ubermunkey , Les Baux de Provence by Andre&Olivier dede13 .


Sunshine, Les Baux de Provence.


I just pressed the shutter. Picture I like the most from yesterday. Les Baux, yet again.


And some me. And teddy bears.

Some of these look like film stills (that is meant to be a compliment). Love the poppy by the ancient aquaduct. And the Les Baux shot you like has such an area of mystery and movement about it.

Film stills is a compliment; meaning the bring a hint of a story. :) Yes, the shot I like feels.... alive. :)

It's easy. Just grab all that fun that comes your way and live it to the fullest. :) That's what I try to do. I only live once.

Vacation in France is always a treat. Especially when you have friends who really take good care of you. :)

Your theme parks there are rendered in exquisite detail - they look just like old European cities! Bravo!

en toute intimite
Just between us:
. Serendipity is that yellow + 3 red stripes icon which happens to look like the South Vietnamese flag, and happens to be posted on LJ at the end of April 2010 which marks the 35th anniversary of the fall of Saigon, which marks 35 years since we fled VN :-.)
. En francais, on dit "la douceur de vie" - che non e esattamente come "la dolce vita" in italiano - which is impossible to translate in non-romance languages because you can't really translate a way of life. But you've captured it pretty well, esp. in the roman aqueduct poppy pix.
. rename geeks pix: les minous! ;-.D

VA!
