Lens-artist’s Photo Challenge #64: Countryside and/or Small Towns

A nostalgic trip to the archives…my first thought for the images to use in this post was Romania, and also Provence several decades ago

So here is Les Baux in the late 1980s, very sleepy then, I believe less so now

…early morning in Tarascon:

Tarascon, 7 am, off to the bakers

…and here is an image of Provençal countryside

And now we’ll head off to the rural landscape of Romania, seen just over a decade ago

Locals in Viskri

Every evening, the cows return home in Miklosaure, as they have done for years and years:

Cows coming home in the evening

Hope you have enjoyed these images

  1. Amy

    These are great photos that you took in late 1980s. The image of Provence is like a beautiful painting. Cows coming home is a cool capture! Thank you for sharing!

  2. These are wonderful Sue – now I know where the phrase “wait till the cows come home” comes from!

  3. Your Provencal countryside looks like an impressionist painting! Nice one, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. Wonderful collection of towns Sue. Great post 😀

  5. Wonderful to share your nostalgia, Sue.

  6. So perfect, it looks like a painting!

  7. Wonderful, Sue! Oh the cows! And that lovely shot in the field with the horses and waggon! ♥

  8. Beautiful photos. Bet the 80’s buildings are the same, at least!
