one of the most beautiful towns on the French Riviera
We are way up the top of the Old Town of Ventimiglia where many people still do things the old way.
Towns near to Menton: Ventimiglia
and the way she has a dangling cigarette in her mouth!
Great photograph Jilly.Costas
Reminds me of a trip to Italy because the housekeeper in our villa did the same thing, every morning. A slice of life photo.
Ineke spotted it!..Yes, the fag. Photo wlouldn't be the same without it!!
There's another way??
A slice of French life. Perfect Jilly. The cigarette adds a little more to it! Reminds me of Nathalie's post about whether we had ever missed a photo opportunity. I did last summer on Ile St. Louis. I was doing a walking photo tour with Meredith Mullins. I spotted a gentleman shaking his tablecloth out the window. I shot it quickly but it was blurry. Meredith gave me an "A" for effort!Save this photo as well!!!V
That is a nice shot of real life!:)
Wonderful snapshot!(Ventimiglia in Liguria, I suppose, or is there one in France too?)In Rome we had a balcony "di servizio" where the housekeepers were allowed to shake the rugs or anything during the morning hours, before eleven I think to remember.
Amazing! Shake out those rugs, like ya mama taught ya!
Nice moment of life you caught! The cigarette is priceless!
Merisi, yes Ventimiglia in Liguria. It's just across the border from Menton. I often go to the market there to shop - many do - and from Monaco.
Aladin's departure airport.....The hostess isn't so distinguished.
I wonder what the neighbors around her think about this? hak hak kofff:-)Ken B.
