French Urban Fragments

Although I can appre­ci­ate nice land­scapes, I am still a urban per­son and I can­not imag­ine liv­ing in the coun­try. I like being sur­rounded by peo­ple, I like the messi­ness and chaos of cities, the pol­lu­tion, the dirt, the noise… all the down­sides of city-living don’t bother me much. But above all, I love cities’ and people’s lit­tle odd­i­ties and quirks. A funny sign, graf­fiti, pat­terns… it is fascinating.

I gave you snap­shots of Peo­ple of Nantes, here are a few urban frag­ments of my home­town, col­lected dur­ing my walks!

  1. I love the pics of your urban frag­ments. I remem­ber this time when it was far eas­ier to pho­to­graph. Now if they aren’t in the stroller you have to keep your eye on them and chase them every­where… Ah the walk­ing, toddler/big kid stages.. :)

  2. I have to make it out to Nantes one day! Not to many peo­ple talk about Nantes in France as a great place to visit, but your pho­tos prove otherwise.
