The Red Carpet Treatment!

By TrevBatWCC    
After a 'relaxing' free day, our first coach outing in Provence took us to Cannes, before going on to Nice. On arriving at Cannes, we were dropped off outside here, Palais des Festivals et des Congrès, to find they'd put out the red carpet out for us! Wink
Most famous for hosting the Cannes Film Festival, the first building was erected some 600 metres further along on the boulevard of Promenade de la Croisette. The new building here was opened in December 1982. On our visit, they were preparing for the Yachting Festival the following week.

Single Raw image processed in Adobe Camera Raw 7, tweaked in Photomatix Pro 5 and Photoshop Elements 11.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging.

Had the same treatment in Rangoon, but we thought they'd put the carpet down on a marble floor in a temple to stop us slipping on the wet floor. The guards had no sense of humour!!

So very glamorous, everyone has to tread on a red carpet at some point in their lives.
I remember the grim, claustrophobic subterranean car park beneath all that...

Well aren't you the lucky one Trev!Wink Lots going on and you've captured it all.
p.s. Ken & I didn't get the red carpet but did get a good shot of a sleeping tramp on a park bench. Long time ago though.
