Nîmes, la ville antique

Montpellier has my heart, but I dream of beautiful Nîmes.  I captured this image around the end of October, a few years ago.  Everything golden-- the leaves, the warm low sunshine, the soft glow of the limestone architecture, as I walked along the Canal du Quai de la Fontaine.  

Nîmes.  Canal du quai de la Fontaine.  

Nîmes.  Canal du quai de la Fontaine.  

I'm searching for silk ribbon for a calligraphy project today.  I'll start in Montpellier but maybe I'll end up in Nîmes.  Only 20 minutes away...  the Rome of France.
