Bonjour Perth encore et fini..



At this time of the year in Perth we don't ever often use umbrellas for rain it's more about keeping le soleil from one's visage, I did enjoy catching vert sur vert above, beautiful trim around the edges of the brolly that perfectly matches the vintage vehicle.  Stripes and berets were la mode of the day,
cliché I know but lots of fun...


'En garde'. Just one of the fun interaction activites, while watching a game of pétanque later I realised it's been quite a while since I last got my boules out :) The young lad with the foxy derriere and cap below was entranced by the ladies in their colourful attire singing what they claimed to be a French classic but was in fact 'otel Californeee :)

Tres belle vintage cars, the old beauty to the bottom left attracting beaucoup attention...


A couple of reflections to fini our visit to this years Bonjour Perth French Festival.. an aerial view of the venue taken early before the crowds arrived en masse! Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe, à bientôt...

  4. What an excellent group of photos from this fun event. I LOVE that first one with all those shades of green. And, those very young fencing students are quite cute.

  5. You managed to feature three of my favorite Citroen cars, the 2CV, the Traction Avanti, and the DS. The Citroen DS was ranked 3rd among the 20th Century's most important cars by a panel of 133 Automotive journalists from 33 different countries. The Model T Ford was first, and the Austin Mini was second. The DS was manufactured between 1955 and 1975, a long time for a single model. It was among the first unit body car, and the first production car to have disk brakes. All modern cars are now built that way. Beside, it looks cool. Speaking of cool, the striped shirt, beret, and mini skirt isn't bad either. Looks like a fun time.

  8. Oh wow, I want that 2CV, the green one! When I was a kid, when you saw a green 2CV (which happened often enough), you'd pinch your neighbour, shout "deux-chevaux verte" and make a wish!

    The Citroën in the first photo reminds me of teenage years! T'was my Dad's car, though not green!

  11. Fine looking old cars. I love the Citroen. I've not seen one of those in the USA since I was but a young boy. Always thought they were sleek.

  20. Lovely old cars, I love the one with the long eyelashes! Must have been a fun event Grace!

  21. I hope you pinched someone and made a wish, Grace! (The Citroën 2CV in German is also called Ente and when you see a green one - only green ones do the magic - pinch someone and make a wish!).

    Love the brolly, too! And the " 'otel Californeee" :-) Great last pic, too!

  26. Well that looks like fun. I love those vintage cars. I hate to think what it would cost to ship them to Australia. So maybe I should get in on this bargain.

  28. How wonderful to find a brolly to match the vintage car! Did you talk the owner of the brolly into standing there? :)

  29. Such a fine collection. The woman in green with the green parasol accentuates the green car perfectly.
