FRANCE: Alsace-Lorraine, 1998 & 2019; a photographic trip report

Here is a rough-cut of the pictures of Alsace-Lorraine, most of which were taken in June 2019:

Stunning photos, Michael. Gorgeous architectural pieces. Quite a contrast with the modern buildings, eh? Same camera throughout?

Nancy is a lovely city, often overlooked even by European tourists. Strasbourg is a jewel, but it on the other hand is often overrun in the tourist season.

Different camera for 1998 and 2019. The former one was a Canon taking slides, the present one is a Panasonic Lumix.

Agreed, wonderful photos. My only disappointment in such collections is that, except for some brief titles, there is no real perspective on the history or other pertinent information on what I am seeing. Kerouac's many excellent Any Port In The Storm offerings are the model for some compelling narrative on what is being photographed.

Eventually I will write a trip report, but in no way will it compete with Kerouac's postings.

I've generally been reluctant to enter an establishment just for a look-see, but since the pharmacy was listed as a building on the local guide to Art Nouveau buildings, I did not hesitate. It turns out that the person behind the counter was most welcoming, giving some history to the pharmacy which used to occupy three floors rather than just the ground floor. We had similar friendly reactions to looking at the interior of establishments in Paris, specifically Lucas-Carton whose Art Nouveau interior must be seen (but I did not photograph the interior) and café Pouchkine where they urged me to look upstairs and said that of course I could take pictures. I do not know if this welcoming is due to a change in attitude on the part of the personnel or a function of age--we are an elderly couple--or a combination of both.

Thanks, Michael, for the camera info. I bought a Lumix from a pro friend a few years ago. It's a great camera--my pocket book hides when I start looking at the newer models!

Not all Lumix models are equal. I chose mine because i wanted a view finder and a flexible screen. Any picture viewed on Flickr will give the camera used if it was a digital camera.

LOL, Michael, I never realized that about the camera info on Flickr! And I have albums on there. Sign me Ms. Oblivious.

Your beautiful photos of Nancy bring back great memories of our daytrip there from Paris. Thanks!

I also went to the Nancy neighbourhood of Art Nouveau homes, even though Michael's photos are far better than mine.
