Boreaux in the Shade


39 degrees… its ok in the shade or under the dapple of the trees, but dare to stray into the sun, even to cross the road, and its an hour in a café drinking iced tea to recover.
With quite a bit of time to kill before my hotel room was ready, I wondered off into the town. I didn’t have an intention to snap any pictures, my eye was caught by a particular window and what ensued was two hours with my camera in my hand. Fortunately the sun wasn’t at its highest, the buildings were casting a shadow and I could dive into air-conditioned shops every so often.
Bordeaux has a wonderful sleek silent tram system. There are no overhead power lines and the tracks are flush with the road surface. They glide with great beauty through the tree-lined Quinconces and on into the streets.
