Old and New

I just finished French by Heart by Rebecca Ramsey about a SC family who lived in France.  I laughed and cried through all her ups and downs and was moved to remembrance.  I've been pondering some of the contrasts I saw the last time I was there.     
All the classical architecture.



All the modern elements.




All the time weathered loveliness viewed through modern eyes.  


The contrast of old and new fascinates me.

I just got my Amazon ordered copy of the French at Heart book; I actually just dropped her a quick email telling her that although I'm only a few pages in, it's like magic and I love it. Then I turn to your blog, b/c I finally have a few free minutes, and I see you have been there/done that. How lovely.
