France - Ahh Sweet

My photographs from a very rushed few hours in France

Snapshots by Sharon McPherson

I am a published writer and small-time book publisher. I was born in Dundee, Scotland. I like tea from a pot, flea markets, breathtaking photos, scrolling the Etsy online shops, the smell of a new hardback book and the way it creaks when you open it, dressing up and dressing down. I am a horse lover. I own four pets. I am writing a modern urban satire.

Inside the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Contemporary Art, won the 'Best Entry' in a club competition at Dundee Photography Society in 2001.

Smaller leisure boats, Port Grimaud, France.

There is a stranger at the door! A St Tropez doorway.

Typically French picture postcard views (above and below) Port Grimaud. Simple and elegant.

More very rushed photographs from my two hours of free time in France: Immaculate. I have started to redecorate the exterior of my flat since I returned from my holiday. Funny that?

Decisions! Decisions! I picked up a new bikini from an open air boutique in Port Grimaud.

Cafe: It is 3pm, Port Grimaud. Where is everyone - siesta?

St Tropez: A secluded cove.

I turned a corner and there she was, I know she lives near St Tropez ... Brigitte Bardot.

Φωτογραφίες από το πασίγνωστο, κοσμικό Σεντ Ντροπέζ στη Νότια Γαλλία.

Γραφικά σπίτια πνιγμένα στους κήπους και τις μυρωδιές της Μεσογείου.

Τόπος γεμάτος χρώματα και φως.
