This was the scene I snapped the other day in Avignon with the traditional row of posters, showing all the hopefuls for the presidential election.
And here is a far more delightful version from Montpellier.
It’s the work of a street-artist called Efix, who popped them on top of the candidates, no glue, no damage; they were taken down pretty quickly apparently. But it’s uplifting to see some fun in the streets.
My vote would be for Madame Bonheur!
