I discovered the Ariege in the 2000s. It's a nice place, in the middle of nowhere where not much happens. Apart from gadding about amongts the trees surrounded by beautiful mountains, not much unlikely happens. Fine, you might run into the odd bear (there are 40 of them now) but the buggers are rather afraid... Continue Reading →
Lines is one of my favourite subjects. When I'm on a photo stint for the 14th district choir I often roam around in search of lines in the churches in which the choir is singing. The above two pictures were taken from the amazing ND du Travail (Our Lady of Labour, literally), a church built... Continue Reading →
Spring is here at last, after months of hail, rain and snow. Here's my selection. No need to add many words to that. Jardins Albert Kahn - Boulogne Ditto Giverny, Monet's gardens Wild violets in the forest in Fontainbleau Tulips, Albert Kahn's gardens.

Our village is named Augirein, there are 70 inhabitants in that village. Now you must imagine that in the 1900s they were over 1,000... Continue Reading →
I'd rather be on the the beach. We've had 100 days (!) of rain and snow [as much as in a full year] and we are sort of fed up with it. Sub zero temperatures are for eskimos, I'd rather be in the sunshine on the Riviera (even though it's not very sunny over there... Continue Reading →
The E.N.A (National School of Administration) in Paris is located in the former buildings of the so-called "Colonial School". Fig trees and Moorish buildings would give you the impression that you are out of this part of the world, in Algeria [Sept 2017] Even closer to my block of flats, St Dominique, a church which...
