Le Grand Café, Felletin, France by Rene Shoemaker, from Athens, GA
While traveling, a sense of place is incorporated into the simplest of daily routines - a cup of coffee. The personality of the café synthesize into the shapes of the surrounding environment. The bustling street, the quiet café, the dogs that wander inside in France -- these details describe the experience, making these quiet times memorable. The Creuse, France, where I feel very much at home because the rural landscape is much like where I live just outside Athens, Ga.
