Most of the time, I tend to consider differently images that I'm taking to keep a trace of something personal (family events, friends, kids), the ones that are just for the love of carrying kilos on my shoulder (walks, week-end or everyday's life) and the ones I'm taking on purpose (portraits, still life, landscapes..).

I usually keep the first ones private (except with the concerned people), and almost always share only some of the last ones, simply because it's their purpose (more less!).

I'm sure most of the time photos in second category are not interesting enough to be shared, but maybe I'm biased, and some could be worth a post (still not 100% sure)...

Because I'm born and living in a South of France, I took me a long time (and 2 years in Boston) to realize how views of villages or landscapes in the area might trigger some interest for other photographers...

So, to share a bit of our day to day living in the French Riviera, here are some views of a nearby small village called Cabris...

I love la France, I spend several holidays there. (Provence/Auvernge/Pyrenees) Beautiful landscape and lots of little picturesque villages. Your photos look so familiar to me, it's like I'm just beamed back to one of this holidays. Thanks for this beautiful
memories! grinning

Heike, if these photos were able to bring you back here for a moment, then I'm more than happy to have posted them.
Now, you just have to come again and post you own pictures, so that I'll see differently these familiar places!

I'm happy you've decided to show these images too. The Mediterranean light is so beautiful.

Hi Antonio, yep, you're right, very different from other places :-)
But sometimes we get so used to the beauties we have in front of us that we do not see them anymore ! Have a nice day !
