We ran out of mustard, so we had to go to Dijon to buy it....


Dijon, the capital city of Burgundy, has one of the best preserved medieval centres in France.
It’s wonderful and very easy to walk and discover charming sites, with lots of pedestrian walking streets.

You can hardly forget that Dijon is also the high temple of mustard –
there's the shop of leading producer Maille at 30 rue de la Liberté, selling a range from mild to cauterizing.

I have chosen voluntarily to not give and specific written description or indication about the places I show in my photos, because this gallery is not supposed to be a virtual tourist guide or a collection of nice postcards.
I prefer to try to convey with my images the same joyful emotions I felt wandering at random over the centre of Dijon, without looking for any monument in particular, but absorbing the general atmosphere. .
They liked playing with roof tiles.... It's a matter of perspective.... Just common houses...
Les Halles . Covered market Do you need to buy a stamp...here is the post office! The temple of mustard... Just a bit of storm....
Fantasyland.... Is it going to rain again? Rue de la Chouette When I say ancient, I do mean ancient...
A room with a view... Well, they know how to make a nice roof in this town! Pretending to be the dukes of Burgundy. ... Sooner or later we are always back to place de la Libération...
In the morning the statue still wore a pale-blue night-gown.... Rainy alley When a town has a heart, you can walk inside it.... A bench like that could be anywhere...But I know it was there.
La Maison Millière How to transform a banal little balcony in a private flowered terrace... If you want to live in a fairytale, just imagine  to... The mustard home....
Night arrival.... Urban ordinary red light  night Just in case you needed mustard at night....
La porte Guillaume in Darcy square Night walk If not here, then where? The place is always the same, but at night the atmosphere changes...
The rain is over, the night keeps on... The tower liked to change its colour... Rain blues... Why not?
Mussels in Place Zola The street after the rain felt a little lonely.... Night green-grocer... Luckily there is a  traffic-light, with all these cars!!!!
After the rain... Night blues of a blue fountain The statue on the roof Like on a theatre stage....
Have you ever met a fly which makes market surveys? By bike is wise... Digital twins take digital photos....
Disproportions... Spring of Spring... Take a break and look at the world passing by.... A little boy, a fountain and a pinch of magic...
Ancient stones are suitable for jeans... I'm fed up to sell flowers... The florist and her client My fellow-traveller...of course!
Ohhh, look at that! The light always goes through...
I cannot think of any title.... ....And to him who knocks, the door will be opened, sometimes...
We ended here by mistake, but it was nice....
You might sit on the menu, if you feel like... Back to the past...but food was fresh! The coffee cup gives you a hint... Obviously we ate escargots....
It could be everywhere, but it was in Dijon... White beer by the Dukes' Palace Les Halles Les Halles 2
Les Halles 3 Mustard...of course! Les Halles 4
