la Brocanteuse

Jun 9, 2010

up above and down below...





We did  the Touriste thing today....

It was overcast, the local Mercredi Brocante was thin.. so we decided to take a drive to Amboise, a beautifull medieval village not far from us.-in fact we hopped in the car outside the door and just drove straight on, no round-abouts, no sharp sudden turns, straight on through tall Plein trees..still on the same road found a parking and walked into the little village where hundreds of touristes were elbowing one another at the post card stands and children were licking glace




I adore pretty street lights...because of the over cast light, it was a pleasure to photograph these







once nose in the air to focus..that is were my camera (and nose)
stayed for the afternoon











then I had to move sideways so that I would not trip over this



these were next to me..allmost missed them..being so "nose in the air"!








..and down below






and back to reality..but quite in place since it is a Medieval village



of course we had Crepe Nutella with our Cafe




and glace too





a very relaxing day
