When Fall meet Winter

It was a clear sky week-end, just after temperature started to drop. Mid-mountain had just received its first snow, earlier than usual, and the low morning light was bringing out fall foliage colors from the monochrome background. After a few weeks of a comfortable and connected kind of hibernation, it seems I’m not the only […]

Irish clouds

One of the most recurring sentences I keep hearing from people who manifest a basic interest for photography relate to weather: “Not a good time for photo, there is no sun” or “It’s a sunny day, let’s take some photos”.

Summer dusk on Charles’ river

Recently I did not had/took a lot of opportunities to practice photography as I used to do when I was abroad…It seems quite usual to be more lazy when back home, the typical “I-have-time, I-can-take-that-picture-tomorrow” syndrome..

Well, until that visit to a botanic garden in Italia…where I was the amazed spectator of a show I never saw before (we […]

50 petals of gray

It is often said that Black & White photography allows to remove color distraction to better focus on the inner subject. But sometimes color is such an important part of the subject that removing it helps to create a complete abstraction of shapes and patterns. While reviewing a set of flower images taken when visiting the Villa […]

Abstract

Filter: Yellow + Graphical

It’s a real work (pain ?) to add keywords to images, and being lazy by essence, it took me a while to make it part of my import process. Initially, I added general information as keywords (location, people names, type of event, etc…). However, as my photo library was growing, I realized I was often […]

Peaceful

It was one of these foggy days where everything seems to fade to white. Being in Acadia National Park only for a few days, we left our small cabin for an early walk around Jordan Pond. Apart a couple of humans and some deers, we were alone in the world. Among various images captured that […]
