Tuesday Photo Challenge: Breathe

Running With Horses

Carousel, the Place de l’Horloge, Avignon, France

When I need to breathe, I like to run with the horses, metaphorically. Every larger city in France seems to have at least one carousel. Unfortunately, some of them are definitely only child-sized. This wonderful adult-sized carousel is in the Place de l’Horloge, Avignon’s main square. I ran with the horses, in a sedate shell carriage.

Le Carousel de Cèzenne, Aix-en-Provence

The wonderful Le Carousel de Cèzanne  near Cours Mirabeau in Aix-de-Provence was not really built for adults, but I was allowed to ride.

Children’s carousel, Christmas Market, Saint-Denis, France

Many carousels appear to be seasonal, such as this petite carousel. It was not meant for me but it was lovely to watch it go round. At the Christmas market in Saint-Denis, a northern suburb of Paris, France.
