It must be lunchtime

By ChrisOs
Another quiet corner of Perouge. Anyone who has ever been in rural France around lunchtime, broadly 12 noon 'til 3pm or so, will know the feeling. It's a bit like the Marie Celeste, apart from Cafes and Restaurants, there's just nobody visible, not even a cat or a dog.

Am thoroughly enjoying this series of Perouges shots. This is another good one, the exposure is very good retaining detail in the shadows under harsh lighting conditions. Masses of texture and detail, and I love the splashes of colour afforded by the flowers and terracotta plant pots. A lovely image.
Edit - a must view large to fully appreciate all the intricate details of this fine image.

Evokes summer in France. Lovely composition.

Very well controlled exposure and the large version does need to be looked at. Very attractive image.
The Marie Celeste effect is even worse in Crete villages at the moment - goes on from about one 'til seven - makes me want to scream! Smile

A lovely scene of rural France-looks idyllic to me! I like all the different textures in this shot, the cobbled path, the rendered walls and the wooden shutters. The little splashes of red from the flowers finish it perfectly.

Love the light and shade Chris with great tones and the green from the ivy breaks up the scene nicely.

Another very nice posycardish image.

Don't take the postcard part as a bad thing.
