ACCORDION PLAYER - LODEVE FRANCE




SOLD


#169
Lodève is about 55 kms NW from Montpellier, France. Saturdays mornings the small town came to life with the market taking over the main streets of town. Lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, clothes, bric-a-brac and musicians just like this one.

Love the everyday quality of this pose (in France, that is), the sense of light and the cigarette smoke!

Très beau portrait Helen et une scène que je connais très bien qui fait partie du charme de ces petits marchés très français !

J'aime beaucoup le travail sur les ombres et la lumière que l'on ressent. C'était l'été sans doute. bravo aussi pour le petit détail que vous n'avez pas oublié : la petite tasse destinée à recevoir les piécettes des passants !

Je m'en vais à présent croquer l'une de vos pommes rouges !
