Since I showed that Obama flickr gallery in class, and then Brodeur assigned us to blog about a photo gallery we like, I had to come up with something else.
On my birthday, my wife gave me a present she had made, a frame with photos I had taken from a trip to Spain to visit some of my cousins on an island in the Mediterranean called Formentera. I was living in southern France, Aix-en-Provence specifically, at the time, and I’d pretty much decided that I wanted to live in Aix half the year and Formentera the other half. The photos are hanging outside the kitchen in my apartment and are a reminder of a great time in my life.
It’s been almost three years since I was in Aix, and a year and a half since I’ve been in France, and I miss it. So, for this assignment I decided to post a gallery of one of my favorite cities in the world. It’s actually a flickr pool with almost 2,000 photos, so I didn’t get through all of them, but this one is a good place to start.
Sometime in the next couple days I’ll make my own flickr stream of my photos from France, and trips to Scotland, Switzerland, Spain, Bulgaria and Greece.
