Photo Friday : Beauty
Friday, August 1, 2008, 11:14 PM - General, Art/Design, Photography
This is my shot for "Beauty" for Photo Friday. I have been asked to explain why I think this. So I like the effect of the water tumbling and boiling (in fact that is someone under the water there about to lift my husband's niece onto his shoulders). I like the reflection of the light on the skin too.

While on holidays in the south of France with my man's family, his / our niece kept asking me to draw her a horse. I told her at the time I didn't have the materials I wanted to draw it in... I hope she likes it, that is obviously a very general version of her.

So where have I been?
We went on a little break from the grey skies and schizophrenic weather of Lille. As the man had an important meeting in Paris on the 15th, we waited until then to head south. It was hot! I left him to read the Mangas he had become addicted to, and went to see some exhibitions. Sadly, it was a Tuesday (normally museums and galleries are not open on Tuesdays in Paris), so I was pushed to do a few different things. My first exhibition was Peter Doig at the Musée D'Art Modern de La Ville de Paris. I was a little wary as the review I read was all raving, "biggest modern painter", "coming from an exhibition at the Tate"... I was expecting something conceptual, but, words cannot describe how much I enjoyed the exhibition, very inspiring.
Next stop, I walked along the canal towards Concord (if you like designer shops, I recommend you do this, as I don't, I found the experience mildly uncomfortable), then I saw the Richard Avedon exhibition at Concord with all the other thousands of tourists in there.
We then got in the car at about 6pm and drove south. We stayed at The Mans Father's property near Entrevaux which, is called Glandèves (I only just found out that that is the name of the town before Entrevaux). We swam, hung out with his family, swam some more with the nieces... it was nice. Now we are back. I hope to have some illustration Friday and perhaps PhotoFriday action happening today.
