Asia and Trains offer the traveler cheap distances coverage and unforgettable experience. Using train to journey across the eastern continent is sometimes challenging but good preparation and tips from the pros make it possible. One of these trip has become very popular in Sri Lanka. Helped by the fantastic website www.seat61.com, we decided to travel […]

Twelve Monkeys

Posted Posted in Photoshoot, Travel

Well, I say twelve but everyone knows that when traveling between the tropics, one encounters way more monkeys than this little 2 digits number! Kids find them funny to watch, adults too, particularly if you decide to anthropomorphise them to a certain point! As I was reviewing the pictures taken from different locations in Sri […]

Paris with Love

Posted Posted in Travel

I visited Paris several times when younger and never really cared about landmarks. I was then more focused on shopping movie theaters or visiting museums. The challenge was to spend one full day and cover as much ground as possible. I started Place de la Nation but it was more of a work site than a […]

Dark around the Stars

Posted Posted in Photoshoot, Travel

One living in a big city is de facto excluded from the clubs of star gazers as the myriads of celestial objects to be elsewhere looked upon are hidden by the glowing ugly lights of our dwellings and luxurious retail units. One can still be very interested or even passionate about the big universe  surrounding us […]

The Shape Of Water

Posted Posted in Travel

I was never passionate about landscape photography. I do like a good or better… amazing photography of  a place but as a photographer, I always felt that whatever beautiful site was in front of me, it was also in front of thousands or even millions of other photographers who would do it more justice! I […]

I Saw The Light…

Posted Posted in London Scenery, Photoshoot, Travel

End of year holiday was once again an opportunity to spend time shooting different kind of pictures. Since I shoot kids in school most of the year, landscape would be a easy choice. I also wanted to try venturing in less known territories and decided to try unusual lighting conditions. First occasion was given by […]

Mirage

Posted Posted in Travel

I spent way too much time investigating the flat earth community and the associated debunking articles and videos over the last few months and came across this rather clear and logical explanation of a “Superior Mirage”. I did not think at the time that I would be lucky enough to witness such a phenomenon with […]

Lines

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Photoshoot, Travel

A very short lay-over does not give many oportunities to discover a big city like New York. We got started in Brooklyn (High Street station) and made our way to Battery Park by foot, crossing the East River on Brooklyn Bridge. Roads, cables and glass panels were all like lines, stretching in all directions. I […]

City of God

Since we spent more than 2 weeks on the best coastal landmarks of Brazil,, Rio was not going to be about sunbathing or endless walk on Copacabana or Ipanema beaches. The other reason for a completely different perspective was the accommodation we had chosen. In order to keep our stay on the cheap side, we […]

Being Human

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Travel

Travel brochures advertise their destinations through their landscapes rather than their inhabitants. When I travel, I want the human experience, meet people, understand the way they choose to live and why they do so. This was on the wrong side of my “pro / con” sheet when contemplating a visit in Brazil, because the best way […]
