Photo du Jour - L'Ancien Quartier

Old and New

Antiquated shop signs, peeling paint, faded wood, modern plastic gutters, phone and cable lines, TV antennas. The ancient quartiers are an intriguing mix of old and new. Pin It

Nice picture; like the mix of old and new so typical of old villages or L'Ancien Quartier.

Love this picture too. I will be in your neck of the woods soon. Like next week! Visiting ma maman in Cruzy!=) Can't wait.

you give the impression that even though you live with this all the time, it still gives you pleasure and you still feel you can appreciate the beauty and specialness.

big sigh, lucky you!

I like the mix too. Wonderful contrasts!

Have a wonderful trip and enjoy the Languedoc! Don't miss the St. Chinian market on Sunday mornings.

It does, truly. You are very perceptive! :)

Actually I took it 2 weeks ago, but we've been down this very street. It's close to the Crêperie. In fact, I think you might have stopped to take a photo of this old sign.
