A few weeks ago, I made a short trip to south france and came across this lovely little town called Palavas Les Flots, about 10 km from Montpellier. A nice place to relax and shoot. A lovely seaside resort, around 10 kilometres from Montpellier, in the region Languedoc-Rousillon in the south of France.
Palavas Les Flots!
My first idea when I stepped into the city was: The Gendarm from St. Tropez (1964) with the unforgettable Louis des Funés as Ludovic Cruchot!
I can´t remember the whole movie but nearly as this city, the setting for the movie must have looked like.
The beach was crowded with people, in the cafeteria people are playing backgammon, drinking Pernod with Water and at the beachwalk, there is a soft-Ice shop every few meters.
For us so called “Les Allemands” we can find something in Palavas Les Flots what we´ve been missing for a long time in Germany: the SUN and this the whole year around. We I was there, we still had 12 degrees in germany and already 28 degrees over there. Hard to take for a person from the north but the light was right for shooting. After 3 hours, both of us (the LC-A and me) needed a break.
For the people who maybe have winter now, here is a heartwarmig gallery for you and don´t forget also your summer will come again.
