Preparing for the Festival (11X14)
We were staying in Vieux Nice on a weekend when the local churches celebrated a Festival (or Blessing) of the Flowers. The talent was obviously all local, ranging from folk dances to a rather tacky beauty contest, but the whole thing was interesting. It felt as if Vieux Nice were a small town within the larger city. This woman was preparing the greens for the garlands to decorate the entrance to one of the participating cathedrals.
