Well I took lots of pics while I was in Perpignan and if I'm going to share any of them with you, now is the time to do it.

In a week and a half, I'm off again for 2 weeks family holiday and it seems entirely possible that i may take a picture or two while away.

So I'm going to try and do slightly more frequent posts over the next week or so, before my Perp pics go past their sell-by date - but probably mainly photos rather than words. Well, unless i think of some words that is.

So, to begin with - Perpignan - colours:

Great photos; and aren't you lucky, going on all these holidays!

Shelly Lowenkopf said...

Lightning in a bottle! You caught the--American spelling--colors.

Akelamalu said...

Lovely photographs Lettuce - they are so artistic! I just do holiday snaps :(
Looking forward to seeing more. :)

Reya Mellicker said...

The shadow pic is fabulous (no surprise that I liked that one!)

Villages in the U.S. never look like this, even when they tried to build European-ish villages, they always came out Ah-mur-ican.

These are great. So glad you'll be posting a bit more before you head off for family vacation. Bravo!!

Lynne said...

Great photos! I see that you like to take photos of architechtural details like windows, balconies and the patterns that buildings make too. I am always doing the same! Though it's certainly more boring in the U.S.!

The Devil Makes Work said...

Fantastic pics lettuce and your post about the pink recycling bin really made me chuckle.

Dumdad said...

Akelamalu is right - these are downright artistic shots. I'm of the point and click photographic school; a journalist I might be, a photographer I am not.

ramblingwoman said...

Lovely lovely photos lettuce. You are very lucky to have had a bit of sun already and there's more to come!

Trac said...

Yes... lovely photos!
You are clever.

(I shall be dropping by there myself soon) :O)

28 Pink Bins in Greenwich!


I might become a pink bin spotter after the summer and see how many I can trac down!

Pod said...

hello trac! hoope all is well?

oh and hello letty. nice pics hey?

Dizzy said...

Looking up again:)

Such lovely photos, maybe you should consider photography more seriously.

Lovely warm colours, just what we need, some warmth, I am sitting here with a cardy on and goosebumps on my legs - I do have shorts on too, not just a cardy!

I am a bit slow. - Regarding recycling, we are way behind here in Jersey. We have some bins dotted about for paper, glass and plastic, though not many. Its not collected from our homes, apart from glass collected once a month. We don't even have any recycling bin for tin. God knows how long before we get pink vibrator recycling bins - probably never - I don't think there is a need for them here ;-)

Steve said...

Fabulous pics, as usual. :)

Joyce said...

hey letty, just here catching up. Such fabulous buildings. Makes our "youngish" country look so dull...

Trac said...

Hi Pod! I am fine! All is very well...
But why are we chatting here??

Joanna said...

Lovely warm colours, just what I need to warm up on a day like today. Hope your having a wonderful holiday.

Z said...

Gorgeous. Thank you.

lettuce said...

i am lucky TT, i know.

thanks Shelly - tho the light is so strong there and the colours so warm, they find their own way into the bottle

glad you like them lulu. I look forward to seeing yours. I think all types of photos are great.

Reya, more shadow pics for you (and Steve) in my next post. :o)

Lynne so you americans keep saying, i'm sure its not true tho.

oh hi devil! nice to see you here again :-) and to know you're chuckling.

dumdad its a pretty pointy clicky little camera really... digital cameras make it so much easier!

i am lucky rambo - sun for you too.

28 trac! maybe we should do some cross-borough research? and investigate the placing of pink bins in relation to pubs?

ta pod. (hi)

poor dizzy, jersey is a bit slow isn't it? cover up those goosebumps, you're making me chilly

ta steve

hey joyce. aren't they? and the colours makes it all seem even warmer than it is down there.

joanna - seems wrong to be wearing woolies in July, don't it?

z, you are welcome!

la bellina mammina said...

Love the vivid colors!

muddy red shoes said...

scrummy colours, you take a fine foto dear lettuce.

Dan said...

I could swear that I left a comment on this post but I no longer see it anymore.

I think I'm losing my mind.
