Promenade des Anglais Nice France

I spent about two weeks earlier this month photographing the Cote d’Azur. Based in Nice, France I traveled up and down the coast to Cannes, Cap D’ail, Menton and Monaco among other locales. 

These photographs are a few taken of the world famous Promenade des Anglais in Nice.

Signature blue and white umbrellas line this stretch of coast.

The signs for beaches show the artistry of a bygone era with vintage fonts and design.

The boulevard is lined with aristocratic architecture from the Belle Epoque era when European nobility summered in this part of the world. The Hotel Negresco is the grande dame of Le Belle Epoque architecturally speaking and the icon of Nice.

I also took a side trip to Imperia on the Italian Riviera. More photographs to come.

The photos remind me of the beauty of France! We were here last summer and checking some new places for our new project. The Menton and Monaco reminded us to go back every year and discover the art and exquisite beach! It seems like the place will be in the first go-list!
