Despite the fact that I was particularly inspired by all the galleries I went to over the weekend I spent in Lyon, in general I love taking pictures of street art and interesting lines, colors, shapes etc that are found just from walking around cities. Lyon did not disappoint as a subject. Here are some of my favorite parts of walking around the Croix Rousse and Vieux Lyon neighborhoods.
Looking over the Pasarelle Saint-Georges from the Presqu'ile
Davey, Davey Crockett, King of the wild frontier
Fontaine Bartholdi and the Opera de Lyon. Did I mention it was FREEZING the whole time I was there?
Une ville sans voitures
Montée de la Grande Côte
RW, this one's for you
The traboule (covered passageways that make short cuts through buildings) that acts as the entrance to Passage Thiaffait - one of the UNESCO world heritage sites. On the other side is the Village des Créateurs which are businesses of young designers.
My souvenir from Village des Créateurs - do you get the reference??? 🙂
Passage Thiafait - the way silk-weavers used to transport their goods through the city
I think the might be my favorite out of the bunch.
Another Bouchon, but far more touristy
A restaurant window
A little taste of the USA
