After my first true visit to Marseille, I can’t say enough good things about the city. While I’m composing my thoughts for a post on the long weekend, I want to share some highlights: the doors and windows of Marseille.
Marseille, the second largest city in France, is one of those places where photographers are compelled to stop every few seconds to take a picture. When walking through the historic heart of Marseille, “Le Panier” district, I snapped photos at almost every corner. The artistic spirit of the area was electric. Paintings and graffiti on walls and buildings were expressions of the culture and the people. They were colorful, energetic, and eclectic. It was the doors and windows of Marseille and Le Panier, however, that made me melt.
These photos of Le Panier district help set the scene for the video of doors and windows shown below. Believe me, it’s only a small sample of the area and its creativity.
Enjoy this brief look at the doors and windows of Marseille.
Stay tuned for more: the views, the history and the food of the fabulous seaport city.
