Many thanks for the comments on the Fourviere Basilica in Lyon - always very appreciated. Still not able to get out and about - but on the mend. I am sorry some more holiday pics. This time some general views about the old quarter of Lyon and some of their prominent landmarks.

Contsructive critique and comments always welcome.

Todays pictures bring many memories. Taking photo's in the Cathedral Square, eating at the pavement restaurants and last of all my husband being trapped in the Hotel lift with all the emergency instructions in French! He didn't know that there was a cctv camera in the lift and we were aware of his plight but could not communicate this to him. The Hotel mamager calmly called the lift engineer who arrived 20 mins later but could not solve the problem. He was in there for an hour ( and furious)! Sylvia

#6 is a first-class abstract and works really well. It's also the sort of shot that would be very strong in contrasty black and white. #2's a very nice shot of the band, particularly with the smiling guitarists. Some of the others are spoilt a bit by the dull skies but they make a good record of your visit and bring back plenty of memories for you and others.
