I love this car we saw while exploring Beaune, France. What a great way to advertise the Dali show!  Dali’s expression might mirror that of someone seeing the car for the first time.  It was certainly eye-catching.


During this trip, we checked off one item from our bucket list–attending a stage of the Tour de France.  After waiting for hours in the cold and rain, the parade of sponsor vehicles came by, including this tribute to the leader of the Tour, the rider wearing the yellow jersey.  This was literally the brightest spot in a day filled with dark clouds and rain, but also with so much fun!

For the Challenger’s Choice theme, choices include:  Abstraction, Animals, Architecture, Food Photography, Night Photography, Objects, Portraiture, Still Life, Street Photography, and Travel.  This week’s photos are a combination of street photography and travel, the first found in a street in the old part of Beaune, France, a lovely city filled with history.  This baby isn’t nearly as old as most of the buildings, but it’s still a vintage car with attitude.


Or how about this cutie seen on the streets of Nuits St. George?


Today’s entry for Cee’s Oddball Photo Challenge comes to you all the way from France.  So pour a glass of wine (Burgundy, please); assemble a plate of pâté, Comté cheese, crusty bread and some slices of melon; turn on today’s stage of le Tour and get ready to say, “Mon Deiu!”


At the Tourist Office in Mélisey, this guy is dressed for le Tour, which will end at La Planche des Belles Filles on Monday.
