Christian,

Ah, c’est dommage que tu n’ais pas fait de photo à Nîmes ! J’ai l’avantage d’aller là-bas assez souvent pour retrouver le pays de mon enfance. D’ailleurs, ma prochaine série de photo sera sur Nîmes.

Amitiés, Bernard

Paolo,

Enrico,

Thank you very much for your nice comments! I shot this photo in January with a low sun which lighted perfectly my favourite bullfighter and my arenas of Nîmes!

Cheers, Bernard

Aramos,

Oui, il y a des corridas de toros dans ces arènes depuis une centaine d’année. Dans quelques jours, pour le week-end de Pentecôte, il y a une grande féria très renommée, ici !

Amitiés de Provence, Bernard
