Scene of Everyday life, indeed. So similar to ours in fact. Not in Paris, of course, but in whatever other city outside.

A beautiful picture, Dina, as this mother is the only passer-by of the scene. A picture of atmosphere.

She is in a hurry for something.

I like those big heavy duty shutters also.

Wonderful composition with that arch, and I love the touch of yellow/gold on the roof and tree...and the blue flowers (plumbago?) in the foreground.

Thought of you today - we received a gift catalog from Heifer International in the mail today and thanks to your blog, I knew who they are and what they do. I don't remember ever receiving one before.

Surprised to see such a quiet place with so few people! Looks like a great place for a stroll!

I love this photo! The texture blends are fantastic, the tones and contrasts are, too.

What a wonderful scene of life.
