I took this last year in 2007 but felt like tweaking it a bit and playing with S/C some more!

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.

I also have a FaceBook Page

  • Thank you! Haha will have to go in search of one! I have the french man in a stripey top but he is facing the wrong way!!
