  3. How beautiful there and I love your pages, too. But that is definitely the weirdest building I have ever seen with the head peeking out–OMG!

  4. You and Mr. M. have a magical way with photographs, you both have an eye for beauty . The photos before and after the mosaic and the mosaic itself have such wonderful subtle and unusual colours and angles.

  5. Thanks for sharing your trip. If you enjoy Chagall, he is featured in a huge
    light and quarry-rock show, at Les Baux, Carrieres Lumineres. Google images has it.

  8. I am so glad you decided to show us more of your beautiful trip. I have been to southern France once but never to Nice or this wonderful village. I really enjoyed your photos and what a fantastic journal spread. You seem to have a Marc Chagall theme going on this trip. Did you see any other artistic sights? Hugs-Erika

  15. Chagall, was a wonderful artist, Patty, he painted so many,many wonderful paintings, and I love the “primitive” simple….. way of picturing the world, on them. Such a beautiful area you have showed here, the buildings are so gorgeous in their half decay and picturesque appearance, I always get the feeling of meeting something wonderful, around the next corner in such places !!
    Your spread just say so much of this experience, dear friend,with you two, fitting in greatly, in new colored shirts, lol.

  17. This is fabulous. I love how you captured it in your journal page, too. Is the Chagall a mosaic? Have you seen the ones in Chicago? I’m so impressed — he did everything — paint, glass, mosaic… what a talent.

  18. OMG what impressive photos dear friend. The building with the head inside looks amazing. And St. Paul de Vence has a lot of picturesque corners, really a dream. Especially a dream for artists. I wish I could visit it sometime and stay there a while to paint.

  21. that Chagall quote is the perfect way to end this lovely journey thru S P de Vence! Aren’t those cemeteries just amazing? I certainly can see how you could become lost in these places and gorgeous photos. Super journal page to remember it by!

  22. I often wish that cameras had a feature were you could add a little note to pictures to help you remember where/what they are. I always start out with grand plans to jot notes as I go along but that only lasts for a few hours and then I’m caught up in simply taking the photos.
