One of the best photos I took in Aix. I knew the colors were there but did not know how they would look in the photo. The bicycle was just parked there at the doorway. Most of the streets in Aix in the old town are one lane, one way and some only wide enough for pedestrians.
The sun was just coming over the buildings and bathing the north side of the street in light.
The Clock Tower. Former belfry of the town and symbol of local government power, the tower spans the street on Roman foundations. Erected in 1510, it houses an astronomic clock built in 1661, containing four wooden statues.

This was one of the better photos I took at the market. It's of a gentleman buying grapes. He took the task seriously.
Looking through the market under the canopies you can get some idea of the depth of the the market. The tomatoes you see are all grown locally. Provence tomatoes are full of flavor and make a great meal all by themselves.
There is an array of color on every table.
