Cool pair, both in their eightieth year and enjoying the sunshine of the south of France.
This is my Mum and Dad who have enjoyed the last 10 years living in the south of France. This past year has been a hard one for them and they have come through it smiling.
I decided to post this double portrait of them, taken last week, as the defining photo of the one year anniversary of Réal Daily Photo. I have not managed to post evry day and I am 88 images short of 365 so I have missed quite a few days - but I am still here!

Today is election day in France in probably what will be the first round to find the next President of France. People are wondering if France will vote in the first women President Ségolène Royal or will it be Nicolas Sarkozy, or perhaps one of the other many candidates?
You never know there might be a clear winner today if not the next vote will be on the 6th of May.

If there is anything I hate worse than caged animals it is caged birds. This one, who we have named Paloma, has hurt its wing and cannot fly.
For the moment we have put her/him in a cage until we can see a vet. There are a whole lot of these Collared Doves Streptopelia decaocto that nest in and around the old church at Réal and Paloma is no doubt from there and we will have to see what can be done. She (we think she is a she) was found outside our front door and as we did not have a cage we had to go buy one.
I only hope she will be able to fly one day again.

The sun is starting to shine again after gale force winds and the loss of electricity on Sunday night for a couple of hours.
Still having to draw on my library of images. This is another from the village festival in Allauch in Provence, France.
