Souvenirs de la France

Here are some pictures I took in different settings during my time in France.

Every time I look at them I have this feeling of melancholy for those “good old days”.

One realises how useful art is when it comes to treasure memories.

Indeed photography is about immortalizing moments, turning them into tangible remembrances.

I hope these pictures can evoke or suggest something positive in you as you go through them.

  1. You have a few of my memories here too, Eleazar, ones for which I have no surviving photos, so thank you. They are all lovely shots, but I especially like the one of Chartres – so upward against the blue sky, and the figure in blue, also so upright, adding perfectly to the scene.

    • Thank you very much! 🙂
      Actually the village in the 4th picture, now that I think of it, reminds a lot of Dutch cities; it is very “Dutch-friendly”, with those reflections on the canal and this stillness very typical of places like Haarlem or Leiden.

  2. Incredible! Mont St. Michel looks so dramatic. Did you stand in the mud while shooting this photo? 🙂
    Strasbourg, Lyon and Dijon look amazing too! I have been in Strasbourg and Lyon before, and I intend to visit Dijon and the Burgundy region this summer. Do you have any recommendation? 🙂

    • Oh I actually stood on a bridge that leads from the parking spot to the rock as such 😀
      Dijon is nice, altho I must say it’s not my favourite 😉 . I guess the Burgundy region is well-known abroad for the wine, but I think it is not the most interesting area to visit.
      I’m particularly fond of the south of France, Montpellier and nearby historical cities (Carcassone, Nîmes, Avignon…), Bordeaux, the Landes, the French Basque Country (Biarritz, St Jean de Luz…), the Périgord… those are awesome! 🙂

  3. How much beauty can you pack in a single post! I was trying to pick a favourite, but it is impossible. Water reflections, lined up buildings, iconic sites, churches, sunsets and parks – they all have one thing in common though – perfect choice of light. Precioso, Eleazar!
