Arles and the region have been the last stop for Van Gogh. Here is the overview of the old town towards the Rhone from the top of the Roman Arena

The Roman Arena from 1st c. AD was uncovered on the 19th c. and there are corridas and other events going in. We have just met a few Gladiators that were stuck in the wrinkles of time.

What a gorgeous series with a social commentary - people in lieu of soaking in where they are & traveled a longways, they bury their heads to be transported somewhere - missing out on family time...tsk, tsk... miss old days. But they'll have selfies to remember by.

p.s which camera & lens?
