La vie douce en Provence by Cvail73

Currently unavailable for purchase

I took this photo in Saint-Tropez, whilst the streets were bathed in golden sun… and everything was warm and slowed down.

La vie douce en Provence was featured in the group European Everyday Life

It all started when I was about 8 when my brother received a camera as a present. It fascinated me, and a year later, I won a basic camera for holiday work at school. The virus was inoculated.
I had my first SLR 18 years ago, went staight for the darkroom at Uni but decided that staying up all nights was not a good idea so I restricted myself to only taking photos after a while. I quickly jumped on the digital bandwagon and loved it straight away..

    It is always a talent to make the viewer feel as if they are there in the photo…great job!

  • Lol, thanks, it’s mainly the town’s talent not mine in this instance…

    i love that golden glow, and the description makes me wish i was there….the shadows are long and lazy, the golden glow hints of the warm energy of eventide…the people are at home in their surrounds..

  • Lol, yeah, I wish I was still there too, lol. St Tropez is amazing for its light (hence the painters who settled there – originally it has nothing to do with these silly celebrities – ;) and when I took this photo, it was truly magic…
