RE: The Palais de l'Isle in Annecy - evening views [ENG-FR]

in #photography9 months ago

In that last photo, 3 or 4 awnings back is where I had lunch when I was there. Very touristy, but then I was a tourist and it was lovely to sit there and people watch, and watch the ducks, too!
I love the boat with the trees! How interesting!
TripAdvisor.com claims this is the most photographed building in Europe.

Sort:  

Oh wow...it also won the european first place..!? 😁 😊

I have to confess since the lockdown I have much difficulties to be in the old town or near the lake, as these places are now crowded and it seems I can not stand it anymore....
before the lockdown, I was already kinda agoraphobic (sort of) but I could ignore the world around me and enjoy the surrounding beauty...maybe it was because I didn't know the other face of the things that have been revealed during the lockdown : things are naturally beautiful and divine by essence, and we human have a propency to make it ugly and less enjoyable by our non-thoughtful presence...
I don't know if my words make sense...I hope you feel what I mean..;

I was in the old town on this evening I took the photos, and it was awfully noisy and smelly, people crammed on the terraces, cigarette smoke everywhere, a deafening and unpleasant noise, nothing appreciable other than these photos that I hastened to take to remember that I love my city, but that I prefer it in quarantine, quiet, beautiful, fulfilled, filled with birdsong, full of beauty that the man could not denature at that time ....

Have a beautiful sunday on your quiet and wonderful place my dear @melinda010100 😘

I completely understand, (says she who has not left her house and yard all year!) And the strange part is, I am quite content with my lifestyle. I laughed at my daughter when she said that she will probably wear a mask for the rest of her life because people are 'icky'.
Cases of the virus continue to escalate here. I will just remain a hermit.

Yes if you are happy that way, just do it, this is how Life is really meant to be I think : Us doing whatever makes us feel good without justifying ourselves to others that would never understand us anyway...what a waste of time to justify our lives, isn't it ? I wish I had this awareness earlier in my life but still am very happy that I have it now and still have plenty of years to fill with fun and happiness before me 😄
I was wondering one thing : how do you manage for the food from your quite isolated place..?

I order my groceries online. I've been doing that for a couple of years, but the virus has caused more stores to create shopping apps, so I am able to do all my shopping online and have things delivered, usually within 2 hours. There is a service fee and then a tip for the driver, so I try to limit my shopping to once a month.
I have the driver bring the bags into my garage and place them on a counter out there, and then I can fill my scooter basket and bring them into the kitchen. I do wear gloves before handling them, but I don't sanitize each individual item, like I know some people do.
The hardware stores and pharmacies have shopping apps and even the fast food places do home delivery. It allows me to live so much more independently.

Oh . my. God. ...you live my dream life ! 😄

Since I can't get about on my own, this is my best option, and I truly have no complaints about my life! 😊 @barbara-orenya
