Small sign , great story

Sometimes ,
we walk through places without looking at them
 
.
 
 
 
I recently saw this sign on a wall
and decided to investigate .
 


I discovered that between 1911 and 1919 ,
the great painter Auguste Renoir  came to Nice every winter
and lived here .
 
 


 This was the view from his windows ..

.. And this is what remains from those times :

Renoir and Nice !
A story of love and light ,
and colors ..
 
Always look behind signs ,
they tell more than they're showing !

Watercolors



Sun gave me gold ,
 sky offered some blue and greys ,
I asked autumn for ochres and yellows .
Found some touch of green in memories .

Have a colorful and quiet sunday !

Double Reader


 
The feathered Gull will read the sign ,
 its reflection... the reflected replica !

A lot of ..

 
Look at the wall , on the right ..
 
 
 
In 1768 ,
Bougainville (Explorer ) arrived in Tahiti ,
Châteaubriand (Writer ) was born ,
Louis XV was King of France .
 

And in Nice ,
the
Bar de la Dégustation ("Sampling Bar " )
 opened .
 
That means a lot of drinks and glasses ..
or a lot of lies ?...

Two bi- or not two bi-

 
A bike ..

if reflected in a puddle .

Shadows

 
Are we more than this
to each other?..
 
 
 
Shadows
passing by
 
walking along for a while
 
then disappearing
into the light ..

It's time



To go back
 to reality,
 to work,
 to normal rythm,
 to routine ..
 
It's september !

Memory breath


It was a month ago .
 It could be as well an eternity .
 
Why,
 Ô why ,
 do summer  days run so fast?...
 
I wish you a long and slow week-end !

This way, please !

 
Hey, try to explain that to waves , streams
and fish !...

Feeling blue (again)




It was one of those days ..
Blue was everywhere around..
No escape for the eyes ..

Something in the air ..


.. is talking about
summer's end ,
hoarded memories ,
shells on shelves ...

Morning yoga



I'm finally back to my early walks .
 It's good to meet old friends again ,
surprising them in their routine ...

Faces

 
We see so many faces during our lives ..
When we're coming back from holidays ,
some of them become special memories .
 
*
 
 Some seemed to want to tell us something ,
 from ages ..
 
Abbaye de Moissac
 
 
 *
 
 
 
 
We remember some others simply because we found them beautiful ..

Musée Ingres , Montauban
 
 
 
 
 

.. or strange and strong .
 
Musée Ingres , Montauban
 *
 
Some were only mysterious .


Montauban
 
 
 
 
 
 
And some others told us so much about the place
and about the people living there ..
