Marseille Mucem Images

This fascinating architecture means the Mucem is worth visiting just for the building alone.  The beautiful lattice work exterior and fascinating construction style provide some great images inside and out.

What an Esplanade

The stunning J4 Esplanade in Marseille.  The cantilever roof of the Villa Mediterranée reflected in the beautiful Mucem museum building.

And here the two lovely buildings seen together from the Fort St. Jean with the Cathedral Mont Majour in the background.

And again from the Fort St. Jean, the amazing elevated pedestrian bridge across to the Mucem building.  Just stunning architecture.

A fishy business

Fish swimming along a wall!  You see all sorts of interesting things in Provence in the most unlikely of places.

Here in Aubagne, part of an exhibition 'au fil de l'eau' . A school of fish moving in a slow and silent travel demonstrating the apparent fragility of the fluidity of time in a state of infinity - is a loose translation of the plaque.

A glorious day in Marseille

A day full of sunshine and lovely sights.
The stunning Norman Foster 'Ombriere' capturing amazing reflections of people and life around the Vieux Port

The cascades of the fountains at the Musee des Beaux Art, with playful pink dolphins.

And of course the always gorgeous view of the Vieux Port itself with a myriad of boats dancing in the Autumn sunshine
