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
