Well... it looks like Monte Carlo Daily Photo is back! For how long, I don't know, but I missed it! And work on my book continues regardless. Time management would appear to be the answer ...
Last Tuesday, I had to go to Monaco and as I'm incapable of going anywhere without a camera, here goes ...
The Monaco Grand Prix is over and the clean up is underway. So, come with me and see what happens. This as you can see is part of the Ferrari hospitality area on the port - in the area known on race day as the Paddock. You don't get in here unless you pay a lotta money. Don't you love that everything, including these guys, are in Ferrari red ...
See you tomorrow ...

The Oceanographic Museum at sunset and a temporary au revoir ...
Monte Carlo Daily Photo is taking a break after publishing daily for over 6 years. Menton Daily Photo will continue, so do please visit me there where I may well publish the odd Monaco photo taken when I visit friends in Monte Carlo.
The reason is that I'm putting all my creative energies into a book of photography and words. All will be revealed eventually...
I want to thank everyone so very much for being so faithful to this blog - for your encouragement and comments. Currently there are 10,000 people a month who look at Monte Carlo Daily Photo, of which 5,000 are what Google refer to as 'unique visitors' so I'm aware that I'm saying a temporary goodbye to a lot of people. But I will be back one day.
I simply need to concentrate my creative energies on my book.
lots of love and thanks - Jilly xxx

Monaco is wearing her usual mantle of steel as she prepares for the Monaco Grand Prix which takes place on the 26th May. Here you see the stand that faces the pit lane. Behind this stand is Port Hercule. We'll see a photo of the other side tomorrow.

Isn't she stunning! I was at Larvotto Beach and saw she was in the harbour, so had to get in the car and drive to the port to photograph her.
She's called Royal Clipper and is a five-masted fully rigged tall ship used as a cruise liner. She flies the Maltese flag. She is listed in Guinness World Records as the largest square-rigged ship in service, with 5202 square metres of sail. Her sails can be handled with a crew as small as twenty using powered controls.
