The weather has been a bit icky recently, it feels like one storm after another. Walking home yesterday from town (Yes I do that when I can) I was struck by the flowers … the sun .. and the shade so I just had to take this snap Did you know that Daffodils are...
Love is Love Nantes

Love is Love Nantes

I’d planned on taking a few shots of these stairs this morning … only to see it was blocked off this morning … as … it had been defaced again. Where is it? It’s at Place du Cirque .. leading up to the Tour Bretagne which is where my new...

Day 12 – Ballet Dancer at the Nefs 2015

I feel like I’m cheating a little bit with today’s post but it’s a photo I took 3 years ago that I really love. It’s of a dancer in a snow globe. It happened as part of the┬áNo├źl aux Nefs in 2015. We all love snow globes right? Well this was a...
Autumn Falls Now with Added Leaves

Autumn Falls Now with Added Leaves

What’s the best camera? the one you’ve got with you. My little girl had 2 flat tires the other day. This meant we ended up walking to the activity centre as I didn’t have the time to fix / pump and find out they were burst. It was cold with a nice...
The Lunar Eclipse

The Lunar Eclipse

Too much ambient light and cloud cover tonight with the moon a bit too low in the sky tonight (trees / buildings) but I did manage to get this shot before deciding to call it a night. I also made a new friend a friendly little hedgehog.

The Moon

The Moon

No matter how many time I shoot the moon in Nantes I never tire of taking it’s picture. With limited equipment for now I’m happy when I get something clear like the above. It’s taken with a Sigma 18 – 250mm lens so not really meant for...

I managed to get into town for a bit of a wander last night. I happily came upon the Rock projection on the┬áCh├óteau des ducs de Bretagne┬áso I had to take a few snaps. I think this is one of my favourite shots with the light trails in the sky. In case you’re...
Grue Titan

Grue Titan

I suspect this is one of my favourite shots I’ve taken in Nantes of the Grue Titan. I love taking the Navibus (TAN) across to┬áTrentemoult. It’s kinda amazing to be able to just hop on a boat not to mention the kids love it. This shot was a bit of a case of...
