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. Ah, Provence. Never been, hehe. Peter Mayle made me want to go there and these side streets are just how I pictured them in my mind. 🙂

  2. Just beautiful Madhu! Did you know I was a French major in college and spent time living in Paris and the South of France? I would love to go back and revisit it. I never made it to these areas in your post. Ahhh thanks for continually giving me the urge to wander!!!!

    1. Thanks Jeff! Just armed myself with an entry lvl DSLR. It better make a difference….cost me one plane fare to Europe 😦

      1. It should, though the most important tool you have is right between your ears. A dslr only give you more freedom and flexibility to be creative. Based on your photos, I’d say you will put it to good use.

        By the way, what did you get? Something nice and “Canon-y” and not that other N word I hope 😉

        1. That’s great! I just had to show my Canon fan-boy status! 😉 Some people do take the N vs. C thing too far if you ask me. Regardless the brand, most cameras are better than the people holding them anyway, my trusty 7D included 😀

Let me know what you think
