The wonderful interior of the majestic Church of La Rochelle it is as beautiful inside as out and we spent a lovely time in it exploring and admiring!

Replacing a XIIth Century Romanesque Church a gothic versions was pulled down in 1568 during the religious conflicts all that remains is it’s bell-tower. Rebuilt for a third time in XVIIth Century the church was burnt down in 1705 save the facade! The present Church since consecrated in 1718 has long been the Sailors’ Parish Church.

Canon 400d iso 200 F/3.5 no flash fired As Is straight from the camera

We live in the West of France in the Poitou Charentes region, I love where we live and take a lot of inspiration for photography from the countryside and wonderful regions around us.

I have not had any formal training and just feel comfortable behind the lens, enjoying the feeling of liberty and fun that is to be had with a camera.
