The wonderful feel of French countryside. This was taken inside a courtyard, in a picturesque village near Villefranche-sur-Saon.

My grandfather was a serious amateur photographer in the ’20s and ’30s, leaving me a legacy of stereoscopic pictures and equipment. The bug passed through the genes to my father and to me. I started taking pictures seriously when I was 11 and I spent most of my teenage years in and out of the darkroom. University, work and kids put photography on pause but my first digital camera in 2006 re-kindled my interest. RB has given me a vehicle for sharing my work and for learning so much.

    Beautiful shot George, with warm colors and great textures! Is it a reflection in the window or is there really a stone wall on the other side?

  • Thanks Johanne, it’s a reflection of the stone wall that was behind me when I took the picture.
