Photo of the Week: 7-13 June 2009

Cubist views of Lyon

I've always wanted this photo. For more than a year and a half since leaving Lyon and travelling back to Australia I have remembered and associated these roof tops with Lyon. When I lived there back in 2006\2007 this was one of my favourite views over the city and although I didn't have the gear to get the image it stayed in my mind and as soon as we decided to go back to Lyon I knew I had to get this shot.

This is a view of the downtown between the two rivers and just out of view to the left is Hotel de Ville and Opera both buildings are very different and I decided to exclude them from the photo.
