Literally only colourful cans

We’ve nearly reached the end of our Brittany jaunt. Not many photos left to share. However I seem to have another glut of colourful cans! Enjoy.    

Dans l’oeil d’une Sirene

  While in Pont Croix I was intrigued by a huge, colourful painting on the wall of a church. It had the evocative title of Dans L’oeil d’une Sirene – In the Eye of the Mermaid. This turned out to be one of many sumptuous, marine themed paintings by Jean-Noel Duchemin. His fishy delights wereContinue reading “Dans l’oeil d’une Sirene”

Pointe de la Torche

Next up is a jaunt to Pointe de la Torche – or in Breton – Beg an Dorchenn. Pointe de la Torche is a promontory located at the southeastern end of the Baie d’Audierne in Plomeur. It attracts surfers, body boarders, kitesurfers, wind-surfers, waveskiers and land yachters and has been the site of several championships.Continue reading “Pointe de la Torche”

Fishing tackle and floaty boats

Taking a brief break from the usual holiday fare of piles of food and peeling paint . . Let’s take a look at another of my favourite photographic subjects – fishing tackle! Yes, that’s right, whether it’s nets and buoys, rusty chains or lobster pots,  I love a good furtle around a working harbour! IContinue reading “Fishing tackle and floaty boats”

Plobannalec-Lesconil

The next day heralds some rather drizzly grey weather but not to be deterred we head to the nearby town of Plobannalec-Lesconil. This little harbour town happens to be hosting its weekly farmers market. This involves fresh produce and lots of local meats as usual! Whether its mountains of spice, roasting chickens or brightly coloured wovenContinue reading “Plobannalec-Lesconil”

Concluding Concarneau

In my final look back at Concarneau I’ve collected together some snaps of the details that I spotted around this pretty little town. From painted wall plaques to delicately decaying shutters and unique shop signs. Meanwhile the Next male models take a break from filming to take in the atmosphere . . . . ThenContinue reading “Concluding Concarneau”

Craving Concarneau

Concarneau is France’s third most important fishing port with plenty to keep you occupied. The Ville Close is without doubt Concarneau’s most popular tourist attraction. This old stone fortified ‘town’ has just a few narrow streets filled with shops and restaurants, where geraniums tumble from window boxes. Concarneau has made its living from the fishingContinue reading “Craving Concarneau”

A little more Quimper

Continuing our wander around Quimper we’re after food, drink and curios. Can’t beat some sugary churros and chocolate dip. So we must eat them until we are sick! We also do a spot of making the streets safer by locking up some hardened criminals. Then it’s onwards to find some quirky details such as paintedContinue reading “A little more Quimper”

Quimper

The next stop on our tour of Brittany is the pretty town of Quimper. Not only is Quimper the administrative capital of the Finistère department, it is also generally regarded as the cultural heart of Brittany. The town is known for its cathedral, atmospheric old quarter and museums but most of all for its annualContinue reading “Quimper”
