Patagonia Dreams
About 4 years ago, I was discovering that magical place we know as Patagonia. I went there to join a photography workshop and had a wonderful time exploring those wide and wild landscapes and trying to capture not only their beauty and grandeur but also their impact on me. That's when I understood what landscape photography was to me, how my experience of photography was aking to meditation and how soothing it could be.
In 2 weeks from now, I'll be flying to Patagonia once again, where I'll try and make not only technically better pictures than the ones in this album but also even more personal ones. The kind of work where I'll try and share with you my feelings about this place. What it will look like exactly, I don't know yet. I do remember how I felt about all those magnificent blues and how disappointed I was I didn't have enough pictures to make a "Patagonia Blues" series, so I'll very likely work on completing that. But then again, maybe I'll find something else to say about Patagonia when I'm there and I'll have to carefully listen to my inner feelings and be ready to quickly change my plans if need by. A challenge for sure (especially for this computer geek ;) but what a fantastic experience it's going to be!
So, if you've missed me lately, what with my being so silent these past months, know that one of the reasons for my absence was my working hard on making money to pay for this trip. If all goes according to plan, I'll have more time shortly after I've come back, so I can work on the images I will have brought back and share them with you. Until then, take care!

This could be of interest to some of you photographers. I, for one, sure like that it doesn't look like a photography backpack. Plus it seems to be pretty versatile and convenient. It's almost too bad I've already got too many photography bags as it is ;)

Is this really my 2014?
Oh, I do see some shots from Iceland and +Photowalk Paris events, so it might be right.

Notice also how they're both carrying something over their head., even though one of them does it only symbolically. And of course the almost identical framing. But it's really the fact that they were shown one next to the other I liked so much.

As usual with +Thom Hogan, no bullshit, relevant and useful info. This time about current Nikon lens rebates. Note that we have similar ones in France:

Not my work. Please click through to the original post to +1 and comment.

Don't you love +David Mathre's take on this windblown tree you may have seen in my Patagonia album? It just stands there, majestic in its fight with the elements. Lovely, I say.

Merci +Alain logonpost ! Pas trop figé, j'espère. C'est quand même un sujet dynamique, après tout ;) Mais peut-être qu'après avoir vu ça, tu envisageras l'Irlande. Après tout, c'est une île aussi ;)

One of the most fascinating myths of +Ireland is known as "sunshine", which is a gaelic word that means something like "magical light and warmth". But, unlike leprechauns, nobody's ever experienced the elusive energy. Pity.

Don't worry, I know it can be warm and sunny in Ireland. But just because I already know it doesn't mean I don't want to come back ;)

Bringing peace to your home
Introduction
In search of the quiet landscape that will help bring peace the whole world around. Or maybe just some serenity into your home.

When I'm not roaming the wilderness, I channel my inner flâneur and explore cities, relying on luck to take me off the beaten path and show me the real soul of the place.

And when I'm home, which these days is Paris, I keep myself busy organising the monthly Parisian photowalks. For more info about those, please visit the Photowalk Paris page.

All the work I share on Google+ is under a CC-BY-SA license. This means you are not only free to download my images from my Google+ albums, but also free to share them with everybody, so long as you don't forget to mention they're my work. You're also free to create something based on my work with the only restriction that it must be CC-BY-SA too.

I do make fine art prints of most of the work you can see here, on archival paper with pigment inks. Just get in touch with me if you'd like one.
