MIDSUMMER IN NIÈVRE / FRANCE


The Nièvre is a more quiet region in the heart of France, a lot of agriculture, meadows, small villages and forgotten cities while their centres are swept clear due to the everywhere spreading shopping-malls on the outskirts of such towns. But there an ideal place is waiting in the Summer’s heat, meaning the cool shadow of an old tree, for listening to the birds and dreaming the other stories of life. Now time has come to move faster to far away horizons. See you soon again.

“SMILE. YOU ARE NOW LIVE ON POLICE TV. ALARM.”

  1. Lovely peaceful shots, though your remarks about dying town centres, as modern development envelopes the outskirts hit home. We lived in such a community in France, and it was hard to watch the old centre dying as modern lotissements and supermarkets cluttered the edges. Good luck with your travels.

    • Thank you very much for adding your personal experience on these more bizarre urban developments to be observed not only there. To go on a real market outside of buildings is always much more exciting and pleasant. So have a nice summer!

    • Glad you like it, I will now make a small break in posting here as the analog world is my real home which sometimes needs simply some more attention. Take care on your further excursions!

    • Oh, now you really irritated me for a moment with the English term ‘pastoral’ meaning in German something really very different. So, I am learning here something again today Thank you!

      • “an ideal place is waiting in the Summer’s heat, meaning the cool shadow of an old tree, for listening to the birds and dreaming” This phrase prompted me to use “pastoral’ in my comment. Perhaps I have been thinking of Beethoven’s sixth symphony. Sorry for have caused a temporary irritation! Peter

      • No problem, my companion has already told me the meaning of ‘pastoral’ in classical music. And I get regularly confused by blogging in a foreign language, thank you again very much!
