Queenie in Frogland
Queen Elizabeth II visited France a few days after D Day celebrations in Normandy. Her visit was greeted by a mixture of admiration and scorn as is natural in a country where half of the population wanted the King and Queen to be beheaded and the other half didn’t (Read The Chouans for a good account of French paranoia in the wake of the French revolution). At a foodstall, as I was waiting to foot the bill, and here she was, saluting the crowd with a weird gesture which probably accounts for her German origins. Chamarande. June 2014.
I'm a photographer and watercolourist. I have practiced photography since childhood and digital photography since 1995. I turned it into my main occupation in 2021. I own a photo studio in Paris, France. Antimuseum.com is both my photo blog and the website for my photography business. My public Flickr space is available at https://flickr.com/yag
