More from France

September 14, 2011

. . . . . . .

Just some photos & diptychs for you today.

(Everyone around me is obsessed with the arrival of autumn, but I’m thinking about swimming in that river above on a hot August day. Autumn can wait.)

    Love the narrow streets and alleys with light streaming in. I can’t get enough of the green foliage, probably because where I live in Colorado the landscape is brown and dessert-like. Thanks for sharing!

    Your spreads are fantastic and full of French local flavors. Always a nice way to start the day when I open your new posts.

    stunning, brian!!

    Wow, wondeful photos. I would like to immediately travel to France. The scenery, the small town – everything has so much flair.

    Have fun swimming. :) Brrr – very brave.

    GORGEOUS!!! I love love the tree that seems to float across the top of the doorway. The water shots are awesome too. Thanks for sharing!

    These are beautiful shots. I love the photos of the alleyways. P.S. Nice new look on your blog!

  11. September 14, 2011 5:11 pm

    amazing shots. love the green!

    Your photographs always give me the little escape that I need each day, to pretend that I am elsewhere. I only wish I could step into them and be far away for a little while.

    the tree above the doorway is simply wonderful.

    Seeing photos of the narrow village street next to the river landscape is so exciting. Both situations are delimited in a dramatic way, yet in very different scales. Nature wins!

    How do you put together your diptychs? I’m just curious about what program you’re using for that…

    Oh, and lovely pictures! :)

      I use GIMP (a free program similar to Photoshop) – Adobe PS Elements works too.

    Great photos! Do you always use an external light meter ?

    • September 15, 2011 1:39 pm

      No, only for my Hasselblad (which has no internal light meter).

    les calanques? i’ll take an august river-dip any ol’ time.

    I love the one of the window(s) with the turquoise shutters. I paused at it waiting for someone’s face to appear in the window. It feels like it is breathing.

  20. September 15, 2011 5:15 am

    WOW! And now I really wish I was in France… These are amazing!

  21. September 15, 2011 7:19 am

    Great, no. 8 and 9 are making me crazy. you are so inspiring, thank you!

  22. September 15, 2011 9:16 am

    Swimming, and then having gorgeous breakfasts. Breakfast is the best meal of the day, if you have time.

    I love the old structures, with their imperfections. if it were in the US, they’d have replacement vinyl windows

    beautiful pictures.
    i am having a spot of deja vu, did you walk along the river from collias, and did you stop by uzes? such a beautiful area.

    • September 15, 2011 12:55 pm

      Yes, that’s where I was – thanks, Tara.

    love the pictures. loved the commentary even more. I am anxiously awaiting autumn, but a bit sorrowful to say good bye to summer.

  26. September 15, 2011 4:40 pm

    What a beautiful place…dream-making…fanciful…I love it. And I, like some of your friends, cannot wait for autumn, my favorite season. Put a swim in that river on your to-do list for 2012.

    Aaah, that house has got a moustache (last horizontal picture)!!!
