Details of a Secret Provence



The heat at this height of summer wipes the words clean off my tongue. I let them go and let my eyes express what my mind cannot. Here in my Secret Provence



















How fluid. How solid. How insubstantial yet lasting.

Have a wonderful week everyone. We are away from home so I may not be responding to your wonderful comments as much as usual but please know that they are very much appreciated, as always.

  3. Sometimes there are no words. Gorgeous, Heather. I love how the textures and colors of the buildings almost look like and abstract painting. So pretty.

  7. I love your secret Provence. Some photos remind me of some parts of Valletta. I'd love to wander around those streets. Some of those buildings have seen better times but the patina of age makes them more beautiful.

    1. Edgar, he was close by in Aix and the surrounding region, which is about a 45 minute drive from us but the topography is absolutely the same.
