1st October: The month started calmly enough so I had time to take a macro of a flower
2nd October: Classic cars came to Cucuron to start their rally on the 2nd of October, the Luberon Marathon day. The race ended by the Etang in the village.
4th October: The 3rd October was either too busy or too boring to find a suitable image. I did the fruit shopping on the 4th and the peaches were delicious!
5th October: A beautiful sunny morning with the sun shining in our mezzanine window making shadows on the wall
6th Octobr: And so the house has been shrouded in scaffolding and netting to protect the passers by. One month later we are sill looking out at scaffolding.
7th October: We participated in a farmers market lunch and had a look around the farm where I found this lovely twirl. It is part of the courgette like vegetable called chou chou. I had never seen it before.
8th October: I must have been pretty short of ideas on this day. I do remember reading on the chaise longue and looking up at the halogen light and finding it interesting – so there you have it.
9th October: My painting brushes live on my table in font of me in this lovely bamboo holder.
12th October: Being incarcerated in a scaffolded house is quite depressing so we escaped to have a walk around the village where we discovered that the Autumn had crept in while we were napping
13th October: This will give you some idea of what it is like to live behind plastic coated windows smeared with cement…
15th October: So we escaped the doom and gloom of cement covered windows and headed north to Maastricht where I found this image intriguing – what do you think it is?
16th October: A pretty ribbon on our duvet
18th October: While Ben was in creche we lunched in a rivrside restaurant where the table was decorated with a very pretty fruit arrangement
20th October: Every morning in Maastricht Ash, the cat, visits us. She is now an old lady but her whiskers are as strong as every!
21st October: Maastricht sunrise through the window.
24th October: Michael D, the new Irish President, as seen on the Google debate. This is a capture of the computer screen. I find it interesting that the next picture of Sarkozy was taken from a HD television. The latter is so much clearer.
27th October: President appeared on TF1, French television, assuring us all that he and Anglea Merkel had sorted Europe’s problems………
28th October: The last MACRO of the month as we headed off to Disneyland, Paris with our grandchildren, a world which demands wide angle photography.
