Photography Friday: F is for ‘France’

Flag of France

This Photography Friday brings us to the stylish country of France. It is a country I would like to see a lot more of because it is so vast and unique from place to place.

While Paris is the popular destination, when I was there I managed to take in some of the smaller details that help make it such a unique city in Europe.

I’ve also been to the smaller city of Perpignan, known as a spot All Blacks’ Dan Carter played for a few years back, but it is also a vibrant colourful city on the edge of France near Spain. It has a cute old town and isn’t too tourist heavy which makes for a great little getaway. I’d just be wary of the train station and roads near it at night (dodgy).

J’espère que vous appréciez les photos!
(If my French is right, that means ‘I hope you enjoy the photos!’)
