This shot will contradict what I just wrote about the harmonious Perret architecture. Here it is a mess. A mix of remaining old villas with post Perret buildings. It is the sea front of le Havre. But it has one quality that you don't find in other beach fronts. The constructions are far from the sea and they are not too high. But most of all, and this is what makes this place unique : the light is always interesting. At dusk, when the sun is already down, the buildings seem to glow in a particular way. The next question is to wonder why is the light so special here, since there are other sea fronts oriented in the same way. No wonder there were a lot of famous painters, Monet in particular, attracted by the light of le Havre.
