Le Tour Pictures

Le Tour de France, Cycling Race

10/10 Photography Circle: July 2016 Edition

I’m so busy at the moment, packing and unpacking and repacking to prepare our travel!!!!

So very quickly I’ll present you some pics from le Tour. And I dedicate this post to my friend Chris who dreams about watching the Tour. We were lucky enough to have the cyclists arriving in our city. I was lucky enough to watch them from the second floor of Ludmila’s best friend house.

Here comes the first… No! it’s just someone from the city! haha

Waiting waiting…

Look at the little hands, that’s my girl trying to catch one of the hats that the advertisers are throwing.

Best french ad!

Here they are arriving, we ‘ve been waiting for 2 hours!

And gone, no more than a few seconds!

I’m sorry those are not great pics. I just wanted to show you the atmosphere. Don’t forget to follow the circle and have a look at my friend’s pictures : Jen. She’s got terrific pics always!

Enjoy my friends.
