Back in November I spent the day in Marseille & had lunch with a friend at Le Comptoir Dugommier.
For many years this was a restuarant run by an elderly Lithuanian woman & each Friday this friend used to lunch there. It was the first time she'd been since the old lady retired last year, so she was keen to see how it had changed.
All the old charm is still there in spades with the addition of some funky 70s touches, including coloured formica tables & chairs and red checked wax tablecloths.
Oh and the food is really good too.
Marion had lunch there a few weeks ago also. Have a look at her pics.
I love this time between Christmas & New Year. I hope you're all having a merry time!

Monade, based in Marseille, is a project entitled 'Image de la Semaine'. They've recently put together a book of 200 weeks of images - exhibited by faberNovel in Paris last week.
My image is on the left - week 69.
Have a look at the other 199 - there are some beauts.

Yesterday after I'd finished some work in central London, I found myself in the midst of the student protest against increased tution fees. I got my camera out & took some shots along with the press guys with their huge zooms & multiple cameras around their necks. It was funny to see their bemused looks.
I then walked across the river to Waterloo Station to pick up a bus as transport had been disrupted due to the protests. Quite soon after it was dusk. An interesting day out in London town.

These shots are from a test roll on a new 33mm pentax which I took with us on a short trip to Toulouse last week. They're disappointly dark but it was a pretty gloomy day & the slide film wasn't so fast.
The Marché Victor Hugo is a covered market open each morning in the centre of the city. Above the market is a string of superb restaurants open for lunch. Toulouse is one of those places where you can't help but eat really well. You have no choice really :)
