SeaUrchin! You're truly a Renaissance woman! Great trip reporting and now great pics as well....will your accomplishments never END???

I did laugh at seeing your "door" pictures. In 1999 I took my husband for his very first trip to Europe, to Italy. We typically take 3 weeks, so you know how it goes..you don't really realize how many pictures of cathedrals, doors, etc, you're taking until you get home!

I did sort of realize we were taking a number of pictures of doors throughout the trip, but when we got back, WOW..there were alot! Not just ANY doors of course..only ones with "character"! As a joke I said we should have friends over to see a "gallery" and have them all blown up on easels. From that comment, we ended up enlarging them to 5 x 8, narrowing it down to 8 pics, matting them and putting them into a frame that's in our living room over the couch!

dear Oursin(oor-sahn) The first time I had seaurchins was so long ago in Paris at Prunier's and was too young to appreciate them. Fast forward as an older woman in Cassis sitting at a café along the port, I had them freshly opened with the lemons served to squeeze on them in their prickly shells. I have been hooked since.
You should have some of your favorite photos made into note cards. I do that every year with one photo I chosse through the Exposure Catalog.

Thanks ladies. That is funny about your doors, I bet they look beautiful over your couch, good idea. Next trip I think I will branch out and maybe get fancy photo shop editing too. Really though, old doors have always intrigued me, thinking of the stories they could tell, through times of war and peace.

Hmmm, I have never eaten an oursin, do they taste like chicken? ha. I can picture you sitting at the cafe at the port with your cassis, wouldn't that be nice right now?

Cards would be a good idea, thanks.
