Lens Artist Photo Challenge,The magic of light

Dusk, let’s sit and enjoy the view.

The day slowly washes away at the Vieux Port in Marseille. Time to relax, breathe away your cares with a sigh and watch the magical light changing before your eyes.

See the array of colour and light that Amy’s sharing.


Blending in

So you take a slow walk up the gentle hill that is Rue D’Aubagne,


take a right turn that looks even less salubrious, into Rue Estelle. Then leave the road, hop up the steps to the bridge,

and there she is, blending in so well, you might not even notice.


I arrived at Marseille St Charles railway station by metro on the blue number 1 line and really didn’t need to venture outside. However, the station is known for its grand approach.

When I was there, it was very hot, the blue sky and white stone were dazzling. It was tempting to go back into the station building and stay cool, but I had to check it out.

The view was fabulous, all the way to Notre Dame de la Garde on the hill to the far right. I nearly stayed put at the top, but I’d seen photos and wanted to see the stairs going up. I’d need to save my energy so I went slowly down.

It was worth it.

104 steps, I went back up even slower, pretending that I was stopping to enjoy the view, but actually saving my breathe and my knees!

LOOK UP is this weeks Lens-Artist Photo Challenge and Patti is in wonderful Florence.
