Too few hours of sunshine never allowed me to go to to Wetland nature reserve as planned but I managed to set something up on our flat roof to make up for it!!! Despite faulty remote trigger and cats roaming in the garden, here are the spring 2013 visitors caught on their lunch!
It has been quite a while since I played with water and light… New experiment with 2 strobes on both sides of the event.
Stranded in my workplace on a Saturday morning, I welcomed relief in the form of a colleagues couple passing by. They played along modeling for me and left me with few shots I am happy with. This is the continuity of my experimentation with Nikon 85mm f:1.8 prime lens, this time in mid aperture with strobes… two […]
78 percent of the air we breathe is made of this molecule… boring to death… compress it when you dive and soon enough you are completely narked, a bit more interesting!… Now, cool it down to liquefy and the fun begins… It’s actually the evaporation of the nitrogen that interested me, not for the cooling effect but the […]
I am not going to bother you with this 1964 movie that no one knew existed but since I come back from this lovely island I thought I would share few things with you… First, it’s hot… scorching in the south and just…. well… hot… in the north! If you are interested in improving your […]

Summer is supposed to show up in a month time but the cold air blowing on the heath rather reminds of November. I stroll in Hampstead heath trying to work on my composition skills… by far my weakest ones! A grey sky gives me the opportunity to focus on the greeneries and the scars left […]
My workplace these days is nothing if not in an Olympic mood! after Stephane Caron visiting primary school pupils, a retired French handball national team captain visited the secondary school. Olivier Girault was in Beijing with the team that brought back the gold medal in 2008. The guy may be retired but trust me, still […]
One of many perks of my daily job is meeting people when they come to interact with the pupils… sports, art and even politics… I then get changed like Clark Kent in a phone booth (except he goes from reporter to superhero when I do exactly the opposite!). So when a triple bronze Olympic medalist […]
As moving things around once was not enough, we did it again… Our school became a polling station for a weekend and welcomed six thousands voters for this second turn of presidential French election. From 550 students to 6000 peoples (and of course back to school mode on Sunday night!)… fortunately not our every day challenge […]
