Views on the Promenade of Nice

The Promenade d’Anglais in the french city of Nice is one of the oldest urban beachfronts in the world. In English the name translates to Promenade of the English, because beginning of the early 1800s mostly British nobleman and aristocrats came here to spend their winter vacations in the warmth of the mediterranean. Later first hotels were built at the sea and a walkway at the coast came into being. The pictures were shot in February 2019.

Parade of Lights: Carnival in Nizza

The carnival in Nizza has a long standing tradition reaching back many decades. Alongside the carnivals in Venice and Rio de Janeiro it is one of the most famous parades of this kind (Mardi Gras would be another example). A festival of lights and flowers, kitschy music and many weird creatures roaming the streets. There is a lot of dance and fun and it ends with the burning of a figure resembling a king – the famous burning of the king. Very french. Also every year there is another overreaching theme, this time it was space an sci fi.
