Giverny – with its overpriced restaurants and busloads of brash Americans — was just a little too touristy for photos despite those breath-taking summer blooms. We were only in Vernon en route to Giverny but I ended up liking Vernon more. It’s probably where Giverny locals go for a good lunch or do their weekly shopping anyway. The owners of the house came home while I was photographing their windows and jokingly asked if they would see the pictures in the newspapers the next day.
Most days I go for tartare frites but I was in the mood for a burger last Sunday – and I finished every morsel of it. Fries were disappointing however, more scraps and bits than I would have liked.
