Fête Créole - the Créole Mass


Summer in Menton means festivals. Last weekend Tango, now the Fête Créole, which is now a regular in the Menton calendar.

Yesterday morning there was a Créole Mass in the Basilica of Saint-Michel.

Let's spend a few days with a great group of people from Guadeloupe, Martinique, Guyana, Haiti, Maurice, Réunion, the Seychelles and Rodrigues.

  2. Fête Créole. Sounds like fun. I guess we can expect more colourful dresses in the coming days then.

  5. I love all three of these. That portrait...I could get lost in her eyes. And the group scene, under the carved angel...such an array of people, representing so many places. And the comfortable relationship between the subjects in the last. Can't wait for more.

  7. Great portrait! There are some cultures that make fantastic use of colours and prints. Your bottom photo indicates that this certainly is one of them! We have pockets of them in the US (particularly in warmer climates), but generally Americans wear pretty boring colours in their wardrobe. Guess that's why I enjoy México so much!

  9. Oh, just gorgeous - skin, clothes, pose, jewelry. Americans usually think of Creoles as from Louisiana. We must remember their origins.
