Bons baisers du festival



Avignon, place du palais
Each first day of the month is Theme day for all City Daily Photo bloggers and our theme on this 1st of August is 'postcard worthy'. I figured this image would be a good testimony to the famous Avignon theatre festival, which finished yesterday. I took this photo on July 30th 2011, the day before yesterday, during an open-air performance in front of the Popes Palace - tell me if it works for you? Care to see more postcards from around the world? Click here to see thumbnail for all participants.

Aujourd'hui est journée à thème pour les blogueurs du réseau City Daily Photo et notre thème du mois est "postcard worthy", digne d'une carte postale. J'ai pensé que cette image prise avant-hier 30 juillet 2011 lors d'une représentation en extérieur sur la place du palais serait une bonne illustration du festival d'Avignon qui s'est terminé hier ; dites-moi si elle vous plait ?

Ah la Passion!

Petrea Burchard said...

Ooh, such drama!

Great postcard!

Nathalie said...

It was a show presented by an Asian theatre company and because I couldn't understand the words I didn't quite get what the story was about. Two women competing for the same man I think, one becoming pregnant and falling into prostitution, the other one becoming a nun. That's as far as I got.

Mark said...

I would buy this postcard if I was in Avignon. Love the B & W.

Madge said...

A dramatic shot! Postcard worthy...

PerthDailyPhoto said...

It certainly does work for me Nathalie, such passion, looks so dramatique in B&W, excellent postcard.

Bob Crowe said...

Yes, a beautiful postcard but from an unknowable location. It's a message from an emotional state, not a place.

Virginia said...

nathalie, this festival is always a thrill for me. What a grand photo for you to share with all of us today. I hope that one day I will be able to visit Avignon, meet you in person, but also be able to meet the people of Avignon as well. City Daily Photo has opened this to us all, n'est-ce pas? I am grateful.

Perfection!

Jack said...

One falling into prostitution and the other becoming a nun? I think we have a TV series like that in the USA.

Your photo makes a lovely postcard.

jeandler said...

Très bonne idée et en noir & blanc pour faire plus réaliste.

Quelle belle tension dans l'image...
Il vient de lui dire:
Voilà, c'est fini
On a tant ressassé les mêmes théories
On a tellement tiré chacun de nôtre côté
Que voilà c'est fini
Trouve un autre rocher petite huître perlée
Ne laisse pas trop couler de temps sous ton p'tit nez
Car c'est fini...c'est fini

Magnifique photo Nathalie, que de choses elle nous susurre à l'oreille.

Everyone would read the back of this postcard to wee what it was about.

Jilly said...

You are my first visit of the day as I KNEW you'd give us something original and of course you have. Absolute stunning photo. Bravo...

nathalie said...

Jilly, Bob, I visited a couple of newsagents and had a look at what sort of postcards they had.I found that artsy b&w photos were well represented.

Since most people can now send a photo of the Popes palace directly to their friends with their iphone or smart phone, standard Popes palace or Pont d'Avignon scenes no longer represent the majority of postcard sales - artsy cards have taken over and b&w do well. I chose to go down that path.

Ah ! tu te lances dans la photo érotique ! Super !

Owen said...

Such abandon !

Almost as good as the shot of the sailor kissing a woman on a street in New York just at the end of World War II...

The postcards are already being printed at the print shop I imagine ?

Leif Hagen said...

Their photo makes for a very romantic postcard, Nathalie!

Jessica said...

Magnifique!

Bergson said...

un noir et blanc un peu nostalgique après toutes ces spectacles colorés

Tanya said...

it's beautiful and really works in b & w!

Sharon said...

This does work. It is also timeless. It could be a 2011 post card or it could be a 1950 post card! Very nice.

Sandy K. said...

Stunning. The story is huge - the message is clearn. I'd frame it, myself.

Wild lot down there......

Très belle !

PPusa said...

You don't have to ask whether your photos work! If you dare to publish it, it works.

Tash said...

It totally works! So lovely, so French. Reminiscent of old time postcards during the '20s when it was about people more than scenery.
Merci beaucoup pour votre message sur PVDP.

Tilia said...

Un brin de vent
ses cheveux volent
elle se pâme

Steffe said...

That is a good one.
