July 14th, Bastille Day

A little pause in the countryside series as France celebrates today the heroes of the French Revolution. In parallel, the Tour de France enters its second week of competition. Therefore I felt this picture taken this afternoon on Les Champs-Elysées was a good symbol as both the country and the Tour are sometimes felt to be « without a driver » .   (click on picture to enlarge)

    The movement of the flag is poetic, full of hope
    I like the composition very much, and the couple at the background is a must
