I couldn’t help having some of these images of this old, stone-lined village processed in black and white. There’s something about the feel and mood of black and white that matches this location for me. And finally, one of the entire village, which gives a bigger perspective on the place and how unique it truly is. Last post on this place!

It’s hard to capture a place like St Paul de Vence, but what struck me as interesting in this beautiful village were the doors to the homes of the people who live there. Everything, including the areas around their doors, is so meticulously maintained, with flower gardens and pots all over. And their tiny mail boxes are so cute. It’s hard to imagine actually living in a place like this. We walked past a woman sitting in her open doorway in the sun reading a book. It was classic relaxation, enjoying a beautiful spot on a gorgeous day. (Perhaps I should have asked to take her picture, but I didn’t want to disturb her peaceful moment. Oh and I don’t speak French!)

We recently visited St Paul de Vence, a gorgeous medieval village in the south of France. The village is situated high on a hill, and its incredible ancient stone walls and hilled streets are amazing to see. It’s hard to believe there are actually cars up there with the narrow streets, but you can see them in some of the pictures. Of course I took tons of pictures! I thought I’d start with some shots of the streets and alleyways.
