A last stop in France, in my home town, Tourcoing before heading back to Brooklyn.
No doubt that Tourcoing does not have the charm of Trouville but it's my hometown and as such I still have a lot of emotional ties to it. Difficult to describe but I like Tourcoing even if I must recognize that things are not changing for the best. It seems that a lot of shops are closing, that life is slowly moving to other cities around. The only positive sign is the rehabilitation of old industrial building into nice condos.
I have, as far as I can remember, always been in love with these moments of the day when the city lights blend in the natural light.
It's still magical for me. Even more so in the early mornings when everything is so silent.
Daylight is always coming to soon...
Here is a mix of images of Deauville & Trouville by day.
A quiet, at this time of the year, spot on the coast about 2 1/2 hours from Paris.
Beautiful beaches, skies, and delicious fish [ not shown here...].
September 19th... Back in town after two weeks in France.
Time to get back to work and post again...
A few images from Lyon. Early morning around the basilique Notre Dame de Fourvière.
Last one from the train going to Trouville, Normandie...
