When time seems to stand still

I feel always like travelling back to long past times when I walk through the narrow and deserted streets of the medieval villages in the Drôme Provençale. Even when they are restored they behold their ancient look with stone walls and lavender-blue or green shutters. It seems that time stands still. Only few things remind me that we live today: the cars, the street signs and some of the shop logos. Even the kids look like children of earlier times.


Most of my village life photos are taken with a retro style camera app. The "C-Type Plate" look. I made this choice to accentuate the historic and timeless character of the french stone villages.
