Photographer's Note

This is my photo #1500 on TE (plus probably a few hundred workshops). I regret that it's not the best photo to use for a "jubilee" like that, but who cares – really?

However, I took the opportunity to add another country to my TE gallery, although probably not even a microscope could help me find it on the TE world map. This is from Monaco, a sovereign microstate on the French Riviera, covering an area of slightly more than 2 square kilometers, making it the world's second smallest country after the Vatican.

I spent most of a Sunday in Monaco in October 1981, one of my days off from the French course I was taking in Juan-les-Pins ahead of a long journey to French speaking parts of West Africa.

I was more impressed by the buildings and atmosphere in Monaco than I had expected, so I was quite pleased with my day by the time I took the train back to Juan-les-Pins in the evening.

Today's photo shows the view from a terrace next to the royal palace (Le Palais des Princes de Monaco). For the WS I basically just turned right, as far as I remember. They were both scanned from Kodachrome slides, but I admit the result this time is below my average.

Here is a larger version.

This concludes my very short series of photos from the French Riviera.
