Sunshine On My 2014 French Photo Course Workshop? – The short (and honest) answer is : “probably.” However as with everything in life beyond our control, we need to realize that , especially in this case, “you pays yer money and you takes yer chances.”
But if the last few weeks here in the land o‘ DA BG are any indication (and I would like to believe they are) – our photographic weather will be so bright that, yes, we WILL “have to wear shades.”
Spring is bursting out all over as the unseasonably mild (and even warm sometimes) days are sending the “time to bloom” signals to flowers and fruit trees. 18 – 23 degree (celsius) temperatures have been enveloping not just the South (as is usually the case) but the entire nine yards o’ la Belle France.
Marvy news for the folks who grow stuff. Because every little growin’ thing is two weeks ahead of schedule. Just compensation for last year, and earlier this one, when the weather was not just unfriendly to their crops, but devastating. (can you say: “terminator?”)
In spite of all this golden positivity (and it IS the best kind) ’tis well to remember that roughly 20 years ago, within the space of hours, in the dead of Spring, the South of France was knee deep in snow. (the first time in 30 plus years the stats say.) And because the official wisdom was: “it never snows here”, there was no sand at the ready. And so, for (maybe the last time?) Cannes (she of the film festival) and environs got to enjoy an extended period of “Winter Wonderland.”
What we will be enjoying(and i’m going out on a limb here….again) On the Bicycle Gourmet’s Photo Course Workshop for 2014 is picture postcard weather.
