Des betes et des hommes

Well these days I have some problems with blogger, sorry i can't leave any comments on your blogs.I hope it will work long enough so i can put some pictures!

At the moment the international agricultural show takes place in Paris. Farmers from Normandy are going to the capital  to show their  animals and present their food production. It is a beautiful manifestation and i chose some pictures from  Yann Arthus-Bertrand 's photo book. These pictures are full of pride, love and complicity between the farm animals and their owners! I  love this book and i wanted to share it with you.
Come to Normandy! this year will be the year of  " Impressionisme ".Come to eat our cheeses, cream , cider ...These pictures are taken from " Des  betes et des hommes " y .Arthus -Bertrand.

Pues sí ,estaría genial visitar Normandía...esas manzanas y el queso tienen una pinta deliciosa!!
Las fotos del libro de Yann Arthus-Bertrand muestran el orgullo de los dueños de esos animales,la relación tan estrecha que se llega a establecer entre ellos....pero la verdad a mí me resultaría imposible colocarme al lado de ese buey y mucho menos a mi hija ,aunque solo fuese para hacer una da miedo.
Un abrazo enorme Catherine y feliz sábado.

Hi Catherine,

I tried to leave a message before, but somehow my computer crashed. Missed several of your posts. So sorry! I can see your Bridgewater teapot has arrived. It is very pretty! Your muffins look delicious too. We have been baking as well. We made some maple pecan muffins. They were very tasty. I am glad you have your appetite back!!

Enjoy your weekend!

Lieve groet, Madelief


Je ne suis jamais lassée de regarder ces photos... L'attitude de l'homme ou son visage transparait dans l'animal ... Bizarre cette ressemblance et quelle justesse dans le regard du photographe !!!
belle journée et à tout bientôt.

I love all these images...but the bulls scare me! We had a big old bull on our farm as I was growing up, he charged my dad and the horse dad was sitting on and nearly killed my dad. Our good farm dog saved dad! Come say hi :D

Love the pictures Catherine...especially the farmers with their animals. Oh my ...I'd love to be there trying out the cheese and other goodies. I must say the best ice cream I ever had was in a little outdoor restaurant in Montmartre...I think the area was called the Place du Tertre? They brought my sister and I a plate with 3 different flavours of ice was to die for! Thank you for bringing back those happy memories! I hope the storm misses you. Take care. Maura
