Aix in photos
Quelle une belle ville - I had just forgotten how very beautiful this town is. Renaissance doors and pediments and sculptures, perfectly designed shops along the narrow pedestrian streets, beautiful people in beautiful clothes.
and the family I lived with 28 years ago are coming today to pick us up and drive us all around, I think we will end up staying with them until the airport Saturday morning, I have some very old photos of them and me to share with them. I will post the before and after, once we get done with our little tour - 28 years ago and today - now off to see the South of France!
"Right now a moment of time is fleeting by! Capture its reality in paint... We must become that moment, make ourselves a sensitive recording plate... give the image of what we actually see, forgetting everything that has been seen before our time." --Paul Cezanne
