Whilst walking through the busy marketplace in Uzès (a commune in the Gard department in southern France), I spotted this woman people-watching from a room above the activity. I gestured to my camera and then to her, she nodded and with her permission, I took the photo. I’ll never know more about her than that she’s a happy people-watcher, but her welcoming smile was characteristic of all the wonderful French people I met on my trip. Technically, Uzès is not part of Provence, but it’s very close!!
