Sault Market Mini Post

Patchwork fields on the road to Sault

Today was market day in Sault and the glorious Summer weather (34 degrees and climbing) seemed like reason enough to brave the hoards of cyclists, tourists and locals to see what I could find.


LUMA Arles

LUMA Arles, Parc des Ateliers

On Monday I visited LUMA Arles, the latest arm of The LUMA Foundation whose aims (according to their website) are ‘to support the activities of independent artists and pioneers, as well as institutions working in the fields of art and photography, publishing, documentary and multimedia.’


Picasso, MuCEM, Marseille

MuCem, Marseille

Marseille is a glorious city. I’m sure for some the lack of must-see monuments, museums, hotels and restaurants would be off putting but for me, a multi-cultured modernist metropolis by the sea, with a seemingly constant supply of sunshine is enough.


MuCem, Marseille in the Mist

Marseille chevrons

I was hoping this post would be called Picasso! MuCem, Marseille as I had a couple of unexpected hours in my favourite city over the weekend and thought I’d see the newly opened Picasso exhibition.


A Weekend Well Spent

The weekend in reserve: Sunday night movie awesomeness High-Rise, directed by Ben Wheatley and based on the 1975 J.G Ballard novel of the same name. Such an enjoyable assault on the senses I wanted to go right back into the cinema and see it again. I think it’s the highest praise possible that two days later I’m still replaying bits in my head – mainly Portishead’s cover of Abba’s SOS, the concrete brutalism of the high rise itself and the scene of Luke Evans and Tom Hiddleston dancing.


Running Rabbit

It’s been a while since I’ve ventured out to L’Isle sur la Sorgue on a Sunday but I figured now the March sun is shining it is a good a time as any. The first thing I fell in love with were those green shutters and then I saw the patterned sideboard and promised myself to come to L’Isle more often.
