What you get when you go to Menton - # 09/63
I've been moving about and having a rest from featuring Richmond (naughty, but sometimes one needs a change of scene and the opportunity to experiment).
This week end I enjoyed the excellent hospitality of Jilly from Menton http://menton-daily-photo.blogspot.com/ , Richard from Zurich http://blog.richardtugwell.com/index.cfm , Nathalie from Avignon http://avignon-in-photos.blogspot.com/ and Peter from Paris http://peter-pho2.blogspot.com/ .
Lemon trees line the streets of Menton. This lemon was picked in a Menton garden on Saturday.
That is a very lovely lemon.ReplyDelete
Ahem... you don't mean to say that you have illegally imported farm produce into the UK?ReplyDelete
(Tried frying it yet?)
What a fabulous image, Chuckeroon. Think we should show it to the Menton tourist office!ReplyDelete
It was such a treat to finally meet you in Menton and I do hope you will come back again soon.
What a simple an fabulous way of describing our meeting! Bravo!ReplyDelete
Mmmm - lemony.ReplyDelete
And, I'm jealous.
Ahh you took a different approach. Very , very nice shot ! I must ask you though, did any of the gang have to say, "Put it away now dear" ?????? :)ReplyDelete
I also want to know if you can shoot with both of those cameras at the same time? I'd bet some money in a casino that you've probably tried it!
AH ! Tu as ramené un citron ! Et bien moi j'ai ramené 2 citrons de Californie l'année dernière que j'ai cueillis sur l'arbre. Lorsque je vivais au Maroc je me souviens avoir cueillis des agrumes (citrons oranges pamplemousses) dans une orangeraie. C'est merveilleux, rien à voir avec une orangerie, nuance.ReplyDelete
Et tu as photographié ce citron. Tu me fais penser à Manet et à son citron du Musée d'Orsay. Ce tableau m'avait frappé. Tout petit avec un cadre doré immense autour.
Une photo acidulée et parfumée qui laisse en souvenir un goût acidulé....
(Tu peux faire un gâteau maintenant avec le zeste)
@Cergie........merci, et bien sur, the Lemon Cake will materialise.ReplyDelete
@Virginia......the others were too engrossed in their own affairs to notice me, except Peter who spent most of his time observing us. And...no I haven't. I constantly seem to forget which one I'm actually using and "the shot" escapes.
@Freefalling......yep! Be jealous. It was a great trip because of the company.
@Mary de B.......it is indeed the finest looking lemon I have ever seen. It will be properly used.
What a lemon, what a shot!ReplyDelete
Absolutely great ! I was sure to find here an exquisite symbol about your trip to Menton. And in fact ;-)ReplyDelete
HA!!! I can see it all now. I have enough trouble getting my settings etc. ready, I'd never be able to pull off two. Is your smaller one a point and shoot??ReplyDelete
