Roquemaure

View of the village of Roquemaure (centre of image on the horizon) from the entrance to the farm Chipoulet just down the road from Réal.

The village of Roquemaure has a population of about 300 people spread over a rural area of 1500 hectare. We are about 35 minutes east from Toulouse sitting above the Tarn river valley at about 270 meters.

So can our little rural village include itself in the BIG CITY daily photo blog? Let me know.

And of course, this is exactly what I mean. Things that might seem simple, common, and everyday to you, will be a pleasure to us "city folk"! It will be nice to get to know your village and villagers. Bon courage!

Eric said...

I knew you could not resist very long before starting your own DP! And with your talent that is definitely good news...

And don't you dare saying "there is nothing going on in a small village", we have a lot of DPs from tiny villages and they manage very well.

Welcome to the DP family Wilf.

Welcome Wilf, and by this open field i can see you have a lot to show us.

Ham said...

Most certainly! For me, the best part of the multiplicity of daily blogs that have sprung up is their difference. Welcome aboard!

Oh wilf, this reminds me of the entrance to the little alcove where my grandparents used to live when I was a small child! They lived in an itty bitty town called Nixa where there were few people spread out over many miles. The entrance to thier street was flanked by two brick towers about 3 1/2 feet high each that my brother, sister, and I used to climb on and have many adventures on all the time. The petit towers also had larger flowering shrubs growing next to them and large open fields on either side. I miss that place so much. Thank you for bringing me back there, wilf!

Bonjour,

Il est évident, à mon sens, qu'un site tel que le votre a sa place dans la "blogosphère" et plus particulièrement ceux dédiés à une ville (ou un village en l'occurrence).

Nul doute que vous trouverez matière à nous faire visiter ce village et ses alentours et donner envie d'aller y faire un petit tour pour une prochaine visite.

Mon oeil a été attiré par le monument qui se trouve au premier plan sur votre cliché, car il me semble bien que nous avions des édifices similaires dans les Pyrénées. En cherchant bien, probablement en trouverai-je un sur une ou deux photos dans mes classeurs...

Bonne continuation donc, et au plaisir de pouvoir admirer de belles photos de nos campagnes (qui ont encore beaucoup de choses à nous raconter).

Amitiés

Didier

Oh this is lovely. It reminds me of the hamlet my father lives in (Louignac); just as beautiful as the city and sadly underappreciated on the www.

Merci! Hannah.

Merci a tous pour vos commentaires pour mes débuts sur Réal Daily Photo. J’espère que vous aimerais la suite.

Thank you all for your lovely comments about my photo blog. I know there are lots out there but the inspiration for doing this came from Eric with his Paris Photo Blog, then looking at many others I decided to make my contribution. I’m looking forward to what follows.

This is very lovely. I'm looking forward to seeing more photos. You'll have all of us wishing we were out of the city and in your village. :-)

From Hyde, a town on the edge of a big city, I welcome your photos of a village. The world is a global village as we visit all these fascinating places and see both similarities and differences.

Felicia said...

Hello, just wanted to say that I look forward to seeing your village. I'm sure that you will have lots of material for photographing. - From San Diego - I'm in a city that is almost too big for me!
