Tried a new restaurant the other day: Mensae
And I loved it. Very well executed and tasty food (not as edgy as some of the stuff I've tried in the past few months but certainly not boring either) in a simple, bright, welcoming setting. Oh and the staff is very welcoming too. This one's going straight into my shortlist of places to go back to.

Every now and then, Google decides to remind me what was happening in my life a few years ago. Well, this time it's showing me what I was doing 4 years ago, when I was working on a #creative366project. A Creative 366 Project? Yep, one picture every day, on a leap year.
And I had decided to shoot all of them using only my phone, the stock camera app and no post processing. So as to force myself to work on my composition skills. I had limited control over lighting too, but only very limited. In this series, you can see how I was trying to create something using only a glass of water lit by a desk lamp. You can see how I was trying to shoot mostly one side or the other, to include the shadow or not. Or to keep only the shadow. Typical example of me working the composition. Until I finally decided to go for the last one, with the glass against a dark background (simply making sure I was lighting the glass but not the table) because, if I remember correctly, I felt the contrast of the bright glass against the dark background was pleasing.
This project was a great exercise, if a bit taxing, and there are still times I think I should do it again. But every time I do, I remember just how difficult it was to produce something every day ;)
Oh and big thanks to +Takahiro Yamamoto, who got me into giving this crazy project a try.

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.
