Week 47- C’est Magnifique!

Week 47- C'est Magnifique!

While in Nice I was surprised to see so many artists. A creative city; it bubbled with life immersed in the glow of the sunshine. Strokes of blues and greens striped the surface of buildings and sparked from every paintbrush. Music sang through every mouth and danced in every ear gliding across the waterfalls and right along the seas.

I love this photo purely because its so real. The reality of a French artist; painting on the street with the sound of accordions in the background what bliss. I must admit it did not take that much skill so as to capture this photo and yet all the best photos take the least effort. I saw the potential in the corner of my eye and I couldn’t help but take a snap. This poor artist had no idea but still what a way to sum up France. C’est Magnifique! 😉 Merci pour lire!


Week 46- “Oh we all like to be beside the seaside”

Life seems so simple by the sea. The breeze so swift pirouettes and glides to whistle through ears and dance amongst thoughts, to smash them to splinters in a fist of fury so fierce it rocks the seabed. Pebbles crash to a plop on the crispy clear blue to be swallowed deep like a fish swallows plankton, the ripples erupting on the surface. Each wave smashes deep, each whistle is a song only to be captured in every seashell.

This week I was lucky to go to a study trip in Nice. Amongst the sunshine and glistening beach I actually learnt plenty of French. I chose this particular photo because its so summery, it describes the lazy days of summer perfectly as well as expressing what nice brought me, fun and headspace which is always good. I initially took this photo because I liked the layers of the sea the pebbles the froth. Alone I felt it needed a bit more so I added my shoes. The perfect colour I feel, but I believe they also add a sense of presence within the photo that everyone can relate to. Thank you for reading 🙂
