Photographer's Note

At the apex of Marseille’s busiest and well known street, La Canebière, you’ll find this wedge shaped park area with a view of the Église Saint-Vincent-de-Paul…a Roman Catholic church, also known as Les Réformés.

As you can tell, the time of day created a split screen exposure of heavy shadow and bright light…not a problem when you’re simply wanting to enjoy some time outside on a nice day like this, but a real pain when it comes to snapping a shot or two. Why haven’t we been granted the ability to control the weather and light conditions for our pictures…is that really too much to ask? :)

Not only that, but the trees in full foliage have also obstructed a clear view of the gazebo…where’s that magic wand when you need one? Oh well, take what you can get and ask questions later I say.

Because of the view, this was one of the places I would rest and eat my sandwich from the vendor I featured in a previous picture…he was just a hop, skip and a jump across the street from here.

Not much else to say about this, just another slice of city life.

Thanks for stopping by.
