May 30: around Avignon 3
I made my way through the southeastern streets of the old city.
A zig and a zag.
At the corner of Rue des Lices and Rue des Teinturiers is the Église des Cordeliers (Franciscan Church); its tower has an appealing spiral-like aspect, at least in this view.
What is this copper pidge looking at?
A little streetside canal! The pigeon is still there, still looking at the canal, just to the right of the bridge and left of the blue pots.
A cryptic bit of public art.
A somewhat claustrophobic look down Rue Bon Martinet from Teinturiers.
Again out to the southeastern ramparts, just like the previous evening.
Off Rue Ninon Vallin, the peripheral route, between Rue Guillaume Puy and Rue Tarasque, a secluded way.
Rue Tarasque's shenanigans continue with whimsical masonry next door up the street.
Another view of same; like subtle premonitions of Gaudí.
A spatially complex little scene back at the canal along Teinturiers.
A view across the same bridge down Rue Puits de la Tarasque.
There are a bunch of these all along Rue des Teinturiers, most I think more intact and benchish than this one, and I wonder what their origin is.
Good choice. If I were a pidge, I would definitely enjoy nesting here.
