Chuckeroon's Menton - Place Honoré II


This group of buildings form Place Honoré II, named in honour of the Prince of Monaco (1597-1662) who was responsible for the creation of many of the great buildings of Menton, including the beautiful Basilica. To the left of this 'place' you can walk up very (very!) steep steps to the Basilica, or you can choose to walk (more gently) through Porte St. Antoine, along Rue Longue and climb the rampes.

Bet you didn't know all this, Chuckeroon, when you took the photograph.

  3. What a terrific photo; graffiti, shutters, angles, tower, and sky all come together to make a really fascinating composition.

  7. What a great series, so varied and some of them completely unexpected. I like street photography so for me the woman in white is just killer. You're a very good hostess, Jilly.

  9. 'tis the eye behind the lens! Entrancing image he has taken for you, Jilly and I like the text too. Somehow that long trudge suits the image.

  10. I did enjoy this view. I don't think I have seen one like it anywhere. Yesterday I was not able to think of the blog that had unusual dressed people on it.

  11. Colors are wonderful, So South spirit, bit the most interesting is the angle you took the picture Chuckeroon.

    Better walk along Rue Longue then climb the rampes, and go down by this side using the "Medieval stairs".

  12. I also say it's the photographer not the camera. This week the theory has been born out with the marvellous guest photography. Absolutely stunning image.

  14. Great perspective. It's always the photographer that makes the shot, and this is a good one.
