Lifestyles in Provence

lifestyle

As a tour guide, I get to see people in their “lifestyles” as I go from one village to another.  I consider this a perk to my job.  Capturing simple life moments reminds me to enjoy my own simple moments.  It is also one of the perks of travel; to see different lifetstyles.  It opens up our senses, our awareness and, quite often, gives us inspiration when we go home to live the little things.

Whether it be a facial expression, a gesture, a look or even a bodily stance, there is a story behind the scene ready to be embraced.  There is so much to see when travelling, other than the sites marked out in the guide books (or your private guide).

Take a little journey in Provence through a few of my own shots.  This is my 2016/17 collection of “lifestyles” in Provence.

How Has Provence Changed? – a look at Saint-Remy de Provence

Obviously things change in twenty years – anywhere; our house, the garden, the community, not to mention ourselves.  Sometimes, we like the change, other times we wish it would go away…or come back depending on how you look at it.  It’s probably a good thing I changed a bit since coming to Provence 20 years ago – my Seattle grunge attire when I first arrived didn’t set so well in the chic French attire (those dreadful looks of French woman when I entered a boutique kind of got to me).
