Photographing Rouen, France

By Kerry Hawkins of Kerry Hawkins Photo

I have recently traveled to Normandy, France. We stayed in a small town near the city of Rouen. Rouen is the capital of upper Normandy and founded in 911. It is one of France's most ancient cities.

I was attracted to it's old and very beautiful cathedrals, streets and buildings. I did get a few shop window shots in. It is fun to see how people decorate their windows in other countries.

Rouen is compact and easy to walk around the old part of the city. There are many pedestrian ways to avoid traffic and explore the city. We found many good restaurants to eat and relax.

I loved to photograph this city. Every corner or street presented something new, unusual, quirky, beautiful and fun.
