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.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Memories

Memories

Frank asked us to share favorite memories this week. In honor of what would have been my dad’s 93 birthday yesterday, March 26, I am sharing memories of John Peter Wallace Friederichs, a wonderful, quiet man who loved to fish, hunt, camp, build things, create things, and learn new things. Most of all, he loved his family. I think of him always. He passed away in 1986.

Favorite Places

Variations on a Theme: Places

This week’s WordPress challenge asks us to identify a favorite place to which we return when we can. Frank’s Tuesday Photo Challenge, at Dutch Goes the Photo, also wants us to identify favorite places. I don’t have a specific favorite place I can select.  I have moved around the US during my working career, and I don’t return to many of the places I visit when I travel. So I have selected some of my favorite buildings and monuments to which I would return if I could. Architecture does speak to me.
