Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

Sometimes, we take a picture because… it’s there! My wife and I had a lovely dinner in this Bistrot in Lyon, France (close to where we were staying at the time). I don’t know if it was the mild weather, the evening light, the atmosphere and the ambiance of the restaurant, or just the fact that the kids were “parked” with our parents and we had a chance to enjoy ourselves without interruptions, but this picture brings back all the mood of the evening…

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.
