Weekly Photo Challenge: Boundaries — 365/Day 275

This week, Ben Huberman, at the Daily Post, challenges to share images of Boundaries. Boundaries, he says, “impose limits on us, whether they’re social constructs or real, physical objects… They’re there to stop us from doing or saying what we actually want to. But they also give structure to our actions and frame our movements.”

Weekly Photo Challenge: From Every Angle

This week’s Photo Challenge, From Every Angle, asks us to share photographs of a stationary subject from three different angles.

Three angles of René de Saint-Marceaux’ sculpture “Arlequin” from the Musée de Beaux-Arts de Lyon collection, Lyon, France.

Three angles of Rodin’s sculpture “Orpheus” from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s collection , Los Angeles, California.

On The Streets of France (late posting for June 3, Day 154 of Project 365)~~ 

Back in LA with loads of photos from my France trip, I’ll continue to share them to catch up with my 365 project. This post’s photos show people going about their lives in the various places we visited in France these past two weeks.

365/Day 153

One City, Two Rivers (late posting for June 2, Day 153 of Project 365)~~

I’ve been fighting some serious jet lag and trying to get back to some important matters I must attend to here in LA. In the meantime, I’m trying to catch up on my 365 project, interrupted by inefficient WiFi capabilities of some hotels in France. This post is for June 2, the day we traveled back to the US. Since I didn’t have a chance to take photographs then, I thought I’d pay homage to one my favorite spots on the trip:the city of Lyon. I love cities that have some body of water around them, be it a river, a lake or the ocean. Lyon has two rivers: the Rhône and the Saône. The Saône is a right tributary of the Rhône, rising at Vioménil in Vosges and joining the Rhône in Lyon, just south of the Presqu’île. Here are views of both rivers from the bridges we crossed many times.

Lyon II: Sunday Market (late posting for May 31, 2015 – Day 151 of Project 365)~~

There’s nothing like a good neighborhood street market. Especially when it is in France! This one in Lyon, by the banks of the Saône river, was very interesting. Locals and visitors mingled, some shopping, some enjoying a meal or a drink with friends and family.

Lyon ~~ (For May 30, 2015, Day 150 of Project 365) 

[Wasn’t able to upload my photos to WordPress in Lyon, France. Back in LA, I’m catching up on my 365 project by posting photos I would’ve shared on the missed days.]

Lyon is known for its historical and architectural landmarks and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lyon was an important area for the production and weaving of silk and in modern times has developed a reputation as the capital of gastronomy in France. It has a significant role in the history of cinema due to Auguste and Louis Lumière, who invented the cinematographe in Lyon.
