another glorious market day and another milestone


It's been three weeks since I took this Sunday market photo.  At today's market, the trees are looking pretty bare. But here they are at their autumnal peak, glowing with the back-light of the low morning sun.  A wonderful last hurrah.

On a more personal note, this blog has reached another milestone, better to be called a kilometer-stone, as this is the 1000th post since it began in February of 2013.  I really never thought I would see this day.

  1. Toutes mes félicitations. Amboise devrait faire éditer un livre d'art avec toutes ces belles prises de vue de la ville et de ses environs.

    1. Yeah, that "daily" part of the idea makes it a challenge.

  4. Avec toutes ces merveilleuses et souvent très originales prises de vue, tu es certainement devenu le meilleur ambassadeur de cette jolie ville d'Amboise! D'ailleurs, lorsque l'on s'adresse à un ambassadeur, on lui sert du"Votre excellence"!
    Excellence, semble bien être le terme qui convient à toute cette oeuvre!
