543 – Rodin, the light of the Ancient

 In 2013, the famous museum in Arles will host an exhibition "Rodin, the light of the Ancient" that will explore cross inspirations, the links forged through the centuries. Rodin wanted to anchor his practice of sculpture in ancient Greek art. His art echoes the plastic perfection and expressive forms; the Greek ideal.

553 – The Ferry Boat at Marseilles

The Ferry-boat: So cherished by the Provençal writer and film director, Marcel Pagnol, leaves from the quay in front of the City Hall to make several daily crossings of the Vieux-Port. The crossings began in June 1880, thus opening the famous passage from the City Hall to the Place aux Huiles, a square located on the opposite side of the port.

These cards all came in the same envelope and these were the stamps used by my good friend Martine.

Welcome. I love it when visitors comment - even if it's only to say "Hi, I've been here!"
