The places we have known do not belong only to the world of space on which we map them for our convenience. None of them was ever more than a thin slice, held between the contiguous impressions that composed our life at that time; the memory of a particular image is but regret for a particular moment; and houses, roads, avenues, are as fugitive, alas, as the years.
— Marcel Proust said that

    A beautiful image of the little shop under the blossoms. Almost a symbol of times gone by.

    I love the dappled shade, quite a bit. And that mural works so well on Mae’s.

    An interesting quote that is – I like Mae’s… the mural on the side is great!

    What a great mural.

    I am always taken with your quotations. Do you see them, note them and save them for using, or do you take your image and then look for the quotation?

    Such a lovely little building. I like everything about it. It has the feeling of going back to a place from childhood and how we have we have changed but is has stayed the same. Beautifully photographed.
