A Day’s Walk in Nice

The Museum of Contemporary Art in Nice needs its own post; that will come tomorrow or the next day. But most of today was devoted to walking streets randomly photographing whatever came into view. So here is something of the flavor of the Cote d’Azur.

    • The seashore has just become the she-shore where, I’ll just assume, someone is selling (or shelling) seashells (or sheshells, or even shesells, whatever they are.)

  1. I think all the windows are real and all the pediments and little balcony railings are paint. Above the town there is a Matisse museum where half the windows are paint, but you’d never know from just looking from 50 yards away.
