Photographer's Note

A major part of the Place du Concert, near the old centre of Lille (Veille Lille) is formed by a long row of cafes and brasseries The middle-top part of the façade of the Corsican ‘L’ile de Beauté restaurant / traiteur is displayed here. In a warm and traditional ambiance all the Corsican culinary niceties were to be had. Really delightful, apart from Corsican wines, the ravioli with brocciu, the strong goat cheese, the dry charcuterie and other delicacies form a rare occurrence in this part of Europe.

I was attracted to this scene by the reference to Corsica and the lively and a bit weathered façade with its strong and eclectic use of outdoor type.
This pic is an addition to the ‘Outdoor type’ theme and a North-western greeting to our Corsican friends Georges, Martine, Dominique and Fabrice.

PS-E2 tech: skewed, heavily cropped, saturation (master, reds, yellows) boosted/altered, USM-ed, frame added and saved for the web.
