The Blue Shutters Of Provence!

Faded blue window shutters never fail to transport me back to Provence. To those quaint, sleepy villages perched atop sun drenched hillsides. Their narrow cobbled streets flanked by ivy covered stone walls and those weathered shutters painted that unique shade of blue.

Aah, to wander down these streets again on a summer afternoon and linger over a slow lunch with a chilled glass of Chateauneuf-du-Pape…..

    1. Oh yes you should! And don’t rush, Provence is about slowing down – slow meals, looong coffee breaks, even longer strolls on those beautiful streets…heaven!

  1. Aah Indeed, Madhu! It is an extraordinary blue, isn’t it, and perfect with the stone buildings? Always looks a little chalky to me, with a touch of the sky and the sea mixed in too! Loely:)

    1. I particularly love their bleached, weathered textures. That is what I love about the French, their ability to make ‘old’ seem so elegant!

    1. Provence IS a region! If you notice, these images are of streets from three different villages in Provence! Glad you liked them Albadr 🙂
