Tonight’s a lazy post, here is a lovely set of stairs in Ventebren Provence. Just around the corner from the incredible restaurant called Le Table.

Even though the Chateau was closed for renovations (seemingly indefinitely), it was still nice wandering around this small town in Provence, France. I took this photo, carefully framing it to avoid the cars parked in front of the clocktower. Then I turned and walked into an artist’s gallery just behind me. The first thing I saw was a painting of the same scene with almost an identical composition.

It was a fairly long walk from Vernazza to Monterosso al Mare up and down along the Italian coastline. When I arrived the first thing I did was sit down in a small cafe above this beach to enjoy parma ham and cantaloupe with a big bottle of water. It was while eating there that I discovered that wasps are attracted to ham. This would be confirmed a couple days later as I tucked into the same lunch in a different location.

I actually have no idea where this is exactly. I was completely lost when I stumbled upon this square. If I were to try to look it up I suppose I could start with the Hotel Codega.

I’ve been planning vacations for the year and right now I’m thinking I will spend a week hiking Hadrian’s Wall in August and then go on a seven day trek of the Paine Circuit in Patagonia.

I had a lot of company while taking pictures in the small harbor of Vernazza. During the day the town feels a bit overrun by tourists, but then at night it seems to all shut down with only a few visitors actually staying in the town.

During my stay in Aix-en-Provence I went on a drive to a number of small villages nearby. I stopped in this village, which has a chateau at the top of the hill. Unfortunately, the Chateau was closed for renovations but I still enjoyed wandering around the town.

You won’t see a lot of black and white photography from me but for some reason it felt like this was the only way this photo worked… and I’m not sure why. What do you think?
