Another close up

As the weather is not sunny in France we need colors in our life.
So, I decided to continue to show you more close up....because there are in flowers, the colors we would like to see all around us especially in this rainy summer.

This flower is a speciality of Britanny.
On the first picture I have modified the colors of it on the computer...the images under are true colors.

This year it's very beautiful in our garden because we had so much rain in the past 3 months.

This is hydrangea - All the flowers are till open - It won't change now.

More fun today

More fun today. I have stayed a little bit in my, there was not so much sun !!!
I don't believe we are end of June....There is so much rain during this month that we find mildiou on tomatoes.

This is garlic after the flower....I found funny to play with focus on my camera (in manual).
Theses photos are differents because of the big depth of this flower.

Today I'm sad - the sky becomes dark

Today I don't post a beautiful picture of Château-Gontier.
My spirit is not turn to show flowers, sun shine and old stones.

In the next months 113 families of the around of Château-Gontier will live dark days, because one member of the family will lost his job.

This factory was baught 2 years ago, the company is making profit...but not the jobs will move to India.

On each black T shirt there is the name of one employe of the factory....there are 113 T shirts

I hope for Indies that the job won't be cheaper on planet Mars....because may be they will lost their jobs in some years.... always more and more profit....

The view from my bedroom

Sorry for that picture, but the view from my bedroom is the neighbour's house.
So I choose to make a photo assembly with the view I've got. I have played with colors.
If the next theme is a photo from the will see my garden !

Désolé pour cette photo, mais la vue de ma chambre, c'est la maison de mon voisin.
J'ai donc fait un montage photo en jouant avec les couleurs.
