Photos from street life by the sea

I Just come back from 2 months from Marseille in southern France, I Have made many many photos, I realized that I was mesmerized by the sea.

The strech of coastline covered by the city proper amounts to rouhgly 50 kms with an industrial harbour, beaches, motorways, towerblock& small houses, clifs &, coves, well a large variety of diferent places.

The city is a harbour turned towards the Mediterranean sea, The city itself was founded 2600 years agos by Greek navigators from the town of Phocea.
Marseille is not a balnear city, because tourism has not been very developped so far (it s changing), so that beaches are only used by locals, A lot of people picnic by the long strech od rocks along the city, or are just watching the sun go down, playing football or beach volley or dive from the rocks.. There are a lot of night bars along the Old harbour, I ll show you the photos later.

All the photos here are on the territory of Marseille, you can see more pix on my blog http://contrairement.blogspot.com
