San Francisco & Bodega Bay - Dec 2012

If you're going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair! Or at least, be sure to bring your camera! Because even after being there several times, I still enjoy it as much as the first time. ;)

However this time, I didn't spend much time in the city itself, but we drove along the road 1 - gorgeous as always - up to Bodega Bay and the small town Bodega. For those of you who would have no idea why this place in particular is important - and don't even start thinking that was my case not too long ago! -, it is in fact the main place where was filmed the movie "The Birds" by Alfred Hitchcock. But that's easy to understand from the pictures. :)

Also, the last few pictures are from Santa Rosa. It's the railway station from the movie "Shadow of a Doubt".

Enjoy!



Premièrement, cliquez sur le lien ci-dessus histoire de vous mettre la chanson dans la tête et d'être dans l'ambiance ! Ensuite, venez voyager dans l'histoire du cinéma, et plus particulière d'Alfred Hitchcock, sur la route de Bodega Bay, lieu de tournage du mythique "Les Oiseaux" !

Les premières photos - supposant que vous les regardez dans l'ordre - vous font revivre San Francisco de nuit, Chinatown particulièrement. Puis vous quittez la ville par le nord en traversant le Golden Gate Bridge.
Après avoir roulé - brièvement, en termes de photos - sur la route 1, vous arrivez au village de Bodega, abritant l'église et l'école du film sus-mentionné, ainsi que quelques magasins de touristes s'appuyant largement sur le succès du film pour vendre divers produits dérivés se rapportant à Hitchcock lui-même ou à son œuvre. Ils ont bien raison me direz-vous, il n'y a pas grand chose d'autre aux alentours !

Bref, le voyage continue jusqu'à Bodega Bay avec quelques photos... d'oiseaux ! Pas si nombreux ceci dit. Puis vous revenez à Bodega, et enfin arrivez de nuit à Santa Rosa pour distinguer dans l'obscurité la gare du film "L'ombre d'un doute", désaffectée et transfomée en office du tourisme.

Profitez du voyage !





Yosemite Park - August 2011

The most beautiful place we saw on this trip - with the Grand Canyon. We didn't spend much time in there, just stop for lunch and walk a little bit around, but that was really a good idea to drive through the park! I would like to go back there and spend a few days hiking, taking pictures...
Really, really nice!

A rather long slideshow for a very beautiful city! Very nice, though very windy, and a lot of places to visit! I wanted to see the Golden Gate Bridge for a long time and I was not disappointed! Alcatraz was fun to visit too. In general, we had a lot of fun!
