City Flavours

Ailsa chose ‘cities’ for this week’s travel theme.  I decided to select some images that, for me, impart the atmosphere, or flavour, of particular cities we’ve visited.

The houses along Rue St Denis  are very typical of Montreal. And Montreal is a delight at night.

This shot is very typical of the atmosphere and style we encountered in Tallinn’s old town.

Cours Mirabeau shaded by plane trees is an iconic image of Aix-en-Provence

There was an incredible light in the streets of Stockholm when we visited the hills and cobbled streets of Gamla Stan.  This was taken on Kindstugatan.

And this shot on Strandgatan says “Visby’ to me.  Visby is a city of about 23,000 and a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Gotland, Sweden.

  1. My favourite is your shot of Gotland….great lines. But I also like your motion effects in the first image, of Montreal. A few places here that I want to see now I’ve seen your images! 🙂
