  3. Of course, of course. As George Clooney would say, what else ?


    When I thought of a postcard of Menton, that scene and no other came to mind.

    You chose the perfect morning light, soft reflections on a quiet day and vivid blue sky that the Riviera is famous for... the perfect postcard to send home to your friends to make them dream they were there too !

  5. Why is it that an "Old Town" is always the most attractive part of any city. This photo is as good as any postcard I've ever seen, and I tend to keep and collect them. A masterful piece of work for this theme day!

  11. Your image is astoundingly affecting, Jilly. The colours, yes. But also the reflected colours, the shape of the 'stepping stones' of the village, and those wonderful arches. I am astounded how tall some of the buildings are when seen from across the water.

    A delightful post card ...

  23. You've captured Menton's beauty, Jilly. And a special thanks for the memories. I can see the building where I lived in two of your shots. It is one of the tall ones Julie mentions. In some sense, it was cut in two, since half the inhabitants entered on the quai-side, and the other half entered on the rue Longue side. We had to exit and go two doors up to use the traverse to get down to the beach.
