Social media world wide is connecting with the horror of the massacres in Paris, France.

Folk are changing their selfie ID pictures to have the tricolor as a b.g. OPFr Ossis Rami has the following picture:





National monuments and buildings are being lit around the world with the French Tricolor.

Default Vive la France

I was on the deck today enjoying a long lunch.
The sky, the clouds and the wine talked to me (as they do).

Here's my deferential image to the French people.





Vive la France



I want to work this theme and this shot up a bit (then I want it see it go viral).

Any suggestions (especially from guys like. I dunno, Nicolas) would be welcomed.

Wow!
Great photo and concept, warm feelings from you Andy!
Nothing to be changed on this image imho
May I pick your image and post it on my Fb page? (crediting you of course)
I refused to post the French flag as suggested by many as I feel more European than French and even more like a man living on the Planet…
But this is different, it's not coming from me, it's coming from a friend who lives on the opposite of our ball…

Cheers! Tchin tchin ! A la tienne !

Hi Nicolas.
By all means put it up.
Part of me thinks, "put a copyright sticker on it" ( maybe it's got some commercial value!)
The other part says "don't be silly, it's a simple response to the times....and copyright stickers ruin the image too"

The theme is in line with the sentiment " they may have bombs but we have Champagne!"

Cheers and Tchin tchin! A la tienne.... nosdrovya, jol mui, slange, yackydah, mo hai bah yo, Bula etc.

Sad but true.

Hi Andy

Sorry, but due to the results of the election yesterday in France, I haven't published your image on my Fb page… I'm not in the mood to appear as a nationalist, the French flag is way too much used by extreme rightists which are far from my side…
Another sad day : (

Hi Nicolas, what a shame the flag has taken on that meaning.
Sadly the same thing has happened here in Aus.
Even the southern cross (stellar constellation) which features on the flag has been hijacked by neo nationalists.
It's an extremely common tattoo that people have and usually can be read as ' I'm a dumb arsed bigot'. Terrible shame.
