...actually, on a short train trip heading east out of Paris to see relatives. I've been wanting to take this series of images for a while, but never made the trip at the right time, in the right weather, with hardly any other passengers to bother with my photography. Glad I finally managed, as it is a trip I will likely no longer be taking, our relatives having moved out from the destination village. These could have been taken from just about any train ride out of a city and into the countryside I suppose, but they mean a bit more to me...

Really like this series Serge... the idea itself is rather whimsical (in a very good way), and you chose the perfect day to execute it... the mist and b&w treatment add to a series thatís dripping in nostalgia... as stand alones 4, 5 and 6 really interest me (4 especially), but the journey, from town to country, is very clearly captured across the whole series... timeless, and very evocative...

Best

And number 5 is typical of many French roads with the trees hugging the side of the tarmac

Thank you both, I appreciate your thoughts.

Bill, you hit it on the head, the intention was nostalgia (and silence, and perhaps a slight bleakness). The first and last images I wasn't quite sure about, but it suddenly dawned on me that, if included, the whole thing would indeed work as a town to country travelogue of sorts.

Peter, 6 on its own works for me too (well, they all do ) I think for its 'classicism' composition-wise. And yes, 5 is absolutely typical.
