Underground in Villefranche-sur-Mer – (Pic du Jour)

Yes, it’s the south of France, for the second time this week.

This is the Rue Obscure, or ‘Dark Street’, beneath the harbor front in Villefranche-sur-Mer, on the French Riviera midway between Nice and Monte Carlo. The passage dates back to 1260.

I waited patiently for this man, a waiter who was taking a cigarette break, to return to work before snapping the photo. I needed an object of reference to give the street both scale and life. The man walking in the opposite direction succeeded in bringing both.

Object is the theme for this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge. Check out more interpretations at the link.
