Celebration in Solitude

On the evening of La fête de la musique in Rodez, crowds mill about all over the town.

I love the festive atmosphere, but it's the solitude of this soloist's celebration that catches my eye the most.

This photo was taken at the foot of the buttress area of the Rodez cathedral.

It was a great evening, Jann. So many people yet everybody so mellow and well-behaved! The fête de la musique truly crosses all age groups, which is another positive point.

What a beautiful summer solstice picture - the atmosphere and lightening is captured so well.

Yesterday we had winter solstice (thanks for your visit!), so now its just 6 month left to this one :-)

You asked for Summer Solsltice in Norway - here you are!

Renny -- How silly that I thought of the feux de St.Jean, which I never go to, and forgot that I had just made a reference to my favorite blog post, which was photographed on the day of the summer solstice! Glad someone is more heads up than I am!
