I've been really impressed by the picture #9, the fountain in a public garden, a delicate balance between action and calm, cold and warm.
Actually, it was sort of stressful for me to take the pictures around the fountain. You can't see it on the photographs but close to the fountain, there are some benches underneath the platanes
(don't know the English word for that tree) and there are always old ladies sitting there underneath the shade who gossip (especially on Saturdays because they can see the wedding parties coming out of the mairie
). Anyway, when I started shooting, they all stopped talking and were looking at me and it made me extremely uncomfortable!
Other exterior pictures (especially #10 and #11) sound familiar to me, somewhere in Paris?
I wish! I'd love to live in Paris (even if it can sometimes be dark and grey and stinky). Alas, I live in my husband's hometown of Limoges and the building that you see is the town's mairie
