Riga, Lettish city, Baltic city.

On one of my other web-sites, I published on Riga about ten pages and 200 photos in fourteen themes (the whole in French).
Making it I did not however exhaust certain photographic pleasures, as I publish here, photos all shooted in Riga, but which illustrates only indirectly this city in the multiple aspects.

These photos are indicated, in the title of the page as 'solitary', because each of them is only suggesting the life of this city.

As often, I finish the page by a small historical reminder (in French) on the city.
