Wall paintings, Chamonix_1

If you walk up through Chamonix and then beyond along the south bank of river Arve you will come to a complex of Concrete buildings, some with domed low-slung roofs. This area is collectively called La Cite Scolaire and includes the Lycée and the College. Also within this area is a Sports complex and the home of ENSA (Ecole Nationale de Ski et Alpinisme).

Wander through the school buildings and on some of the walls you will find a variety of well-executed wall paintings – presumably created by students. If it’s safe, always venture off the main routes, you never know what you will find tucked away.

About LensScaper

Hi - I'm a UK-based photographer who started out 45+ years ago as a lover of landscapes, inspired by my love of outdoor pursuits: skiing, walking and climbing. Now retired, I seldom leave home without a camera and I find images in unexpected places and from different genres. I work on the premise that Photography is Art and that creativity is dependent on the cultivation of 'A Seeing Eye'. I'm not averse to manipulating images to produce derivatives that may sometimes be far removed from the original.
