A bakery and grocery store spotted whilst ambling through the streets of Ménerbes in South-East France. I was attracted by the warm harmonious colours of the façade and the interesting array of articles on display. Apologies for the close cropping but the street was very narrow.
Ménerbes is a commune in the Vaucluse department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region in southeastern France, a walled village on a hilltop in the Luberon mountains, foothills of the French Alps.

Bonjour, cher Stephen,
Une bien belle image qui me replonge dans mon enfance.
Les agréables odeurs s'échappant de la vitrine viennent nous chatouiller le nez avec délices.
Le charme est manifeste à travers cette composition.

sono molti i luoghi della Francia che mi piacciono, ma in ogni villaggio, in ogni città, ciò che più amo sono le boulangerie.
Il profumo che emanano e gli squisiti e saporiti prodotti in vendita, sono delle vere delizie a cui non ci si può sottrarre. In tutti i viaggi che ho fatto in terra francese, ogni giorno, una volta la mattina e una volta il pomeriggio, ho frequentato questi negozi e assaggiato i sapori delle varie regioni.

Beautifully shown the shop-vitrine, meticulousely displayed the goodies, Stephen.
Small tonws shpos run by generations in the family's, are always an interesting subject, the findings could be an intriguing task.
Spotted and presented in a most elegant manner.

beautiful capture of this amazing little bakery. I wish I were there to taste something. Looks typical and traditional. Nice work.

hai sempre avuto un debole per le riprese di questi locali tipici dei piccoli borghi e non ti sei lasciato, di certo, sfuggire l'occasione di riprendere questa bella e caratteristica pasticceria che immagino offrisse dolci particolarmente appetitosi.
Inserita in una composizione gradevole, con buona nitidezza e colori delicati essa offre l'opportunità al proprietario, se è un frequentatore di TE, di farsi anche un'ottima pubblicità.
Ciao e buona domenica

You show really nicely here how a traditional storefront is so much more appealing than the modern ones we sometimes see in bigger cities. This place begs the viewer to step inside and sample the products on offer, and I think this is helped nicely by the fact that the door is open and looking very welcoming.

Les belles couleurs de la façade sont très attirantes. J'aime comme ces petits commerces savent se mettre en valeur. C'est certain qu'on a envié d'y entrer. Belle présentation,

Hi Stephen, Charming small shop and I am sure that they have delicious baguettes and cookings. nice sign in the good old style. Lovely photo.

Good framing, with particular attention to perspective and placement of the diagonal text, which also adds dynamism. Excellent sharpness & pleasant pastel colours. The open door conveys an invitation to enter. Good shadow detail and exposure on the highlights. The window reflection doesn't bother me. Tfs!

Stephen, beautifully sharp image of this storefront. I like the muted colors everywhere except for the jams in the window. The close crop really doesn't detract from this shot for me, except possibly at the bottom, where I would have liked to see more of the wall beneath the shop window. Thanks.

Having just returned from a visit to the French Riviera and Monaco, I could not resist a visit to Roche & Fils's Boulangerie-Patisserie-Épicerie. Oh that pastry! You've presented the shop in an understated manner, but I can taste it from 3000 miles away,.
ourania (18506) 2013-09-17 13:21
I like very much how you've adjusted the perspective of the facade to the tight frame, it's only at the bottom that the cropping is too close, but you've explained why. The colours and textures are very attractive and delightful, the items displayed at the window lead to a reverie, the open door and the sense of depth are very inviting. The reflections are a fine addition. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

A delightful and tempting display of edibles here Stephen and a shot which embodies my ideas of a French grocery store. No supermarket shop front but home crafted food that makes the mouth water. An attractive slice of France. Warm regards Rosemary
