{Honfleur}

I was really inspired by the photography of a friend "Jessy Coisnon " to the city of Honfleur { which is a commune in the Norman département of Calvados in France, located on the southern bank of the estuary of the Seine}, the mood of it, the quietness and its architecture.

Honfleur especially known for its old, beautiful picturesque port, characterized by its houses with slate-covered frontages, painted many times by artists, including in particular Gustave Courbet, Eugène Boudin, Claude Monet and Johan Jongkind, forming the école de Honfleur (Honfleur school) which contributed to the appearance of the Impressionist movement. The Sainte-Catherine church, which has a bell-tower separate from the principal building, is the largest church made out of wood in France.
