Rita Crane Photography: Menton / France / Cote D'Azur / Mediterranean / mimosa / palm trees / texture / rooftops / View from the Gardens, French Riviera

Hi Flickr friends! I'm working on a show right now that I will be hanging early next week, so I'm busy printing and framing. In the meantime I thought I'd repost this one that many of you most likely never saw before. I have been enjoying adding textures to photos, so here's one from my Textures Set. You can see the others here:


A little detour to sunny southern France today!! It was a refreshing afternoon in Menton, the last town along the French Riviera before the Italian border and I loved the view from this former 19th century British hotel of the Belle Epoque and how beautifully they still maintain the gardens. The climate here in Menton is perfect for all kinds of exotic plants, with the warmest winters in all of France. Scroll down for other shots of Menton, with descriptions.


Thanks to Paul Grand for his texture, and to Bocaccino for the 93 BBB and the 110 BB textures:
