Taking a break

Palais des Papes, AvignonAfter the parade the aviators, gliders and riders of amazing machines take a break at the Popes' Palace door.
Après la parade, les fous volants dans leurs drôles de machines font la pause au pied du palais des papes.

Qu'est-ce que c'est bien l'immobilité du sujet pour un photographe !

La lumière les paye en or.

La lumière sur les vieilles pierres offre un arrière plan en parfaite harmonie avec les personnages et leurs supports.

Superbes photos !

Bonjour! Nathalie...
The first word that came to mind...upon viewing your beautiful photograph(s) is very...Steam-punkish.
[Steam-punk is a genre that I have just discovered...too!]
Merci,
deedee ;-D

These are such good images. After work like this they shouldn't have to beg for indulgences.

As I scrolled down I thought each one my favorite but now......... I'm loving the bottom left, but then..... ;)
They are each just marvelous in their own way, dear N. NON, I"m going with the bottom left. Masterful composition.

A unique array of subjects for portraiture! I really love the golden backgrounds (perhaps a late afternoon sun reflecting off the stonework) for their pensive and restful poses after the performances in the parade. Perhaps still dreaming of flight...

More great shots here. Some day I'll have to get to Avignon in time for this event.
