Amiens city that attracts me, as it has done since 1960, attracting many students by opening different faculties, sciences, law and economics!
Here one of the streets of Saint-Leu, crossed by the Somme which crosses the city to the hortillonnages, famous for their vegetable crops!
A beautiful afternoon of October was the beginning of the Thanksgiving holiday, we came with my husband, our son back Remi, computer science student in the same city!

amazing sky and perfectly placement of the beautiful buildings in a row on the river bank.

Hi Odile,
a lovely scene you captured here. Good management of light on the photo given the lighted areas and the shadows. I would have liked to see some people in the photo, but that is a minor problem.

Hi Odile

Seems that there are Venice towns all over. Bruges, San Antonio, Amsterdam, east China & of course Italy! Good sharpness color & framing. A wonderful blue sky & good reflections & warm cold color contrasts. Wasn't Amiens a WWI battlefield? Tfs et merci pour ce partage!
