“Nature’s Mirror” : Strasbourg, France, 1st September 2011
There’s a whole side to the French city of Strasbourg that most tourists don’t get to see.
Once you leave the quaint picturesque timbered medieval houses of the old quarter, there are the grand boulevards and impressive public buildings of more recent times, giving way to the university, the botanical gardens and then the area dedicated to the assemblies of the European Union.
It was on the edge of this latter region that I stumbled upon this beautiful, and somehow typically European scene, bringing out the latent landscape photographer in me.
Incidentally, this will be the last photo from France for a while, since I have now finally begun processing the pictures I took in the last third of my summer trip, which took me to Portugal, so expect a change of atmosphere.
