Photographer's Note

Market day is over. It's time to take down the stalls and clean up the mess.

Here is a larger version.

This is somewhere in the old part of Nice on the French Riviera in October 1981. During that autumn I was preparing a long journey to West Africa. Since I was to spend nearly all of four months in former French colonies it had dawned upon me that I had hardly spoken a word of French since I left school more than 14 years earlier.

Did I remember anything at all? I realized I desperately needed to brush up my French, or the entire journey could become a giant failure. So I found a school in Juan-les-Pins on the Riviera giving crash courses and signed up for three weeks of intense training.

During the days I had classes or did my "homework", in the weekends I made short trips in the area. A couple of times I visited Nice, which I found to be a suitably Nice City.

Two postcard kind of photos taken from a hill can be seen in the WS. One shows mainly roofs, the other mainly the city beach. All photos were scanned from Kodachrome slides.

This is not the start of another long series. Maximum two more uploads, then I will go somewhere else.
