Commute in Toulouse

I have a number of photos of this view as it used to be a part of my daily commute. I remember thinking that particular evening that the sky seemed on fire, and luckily I had a camera in my backpack. I took several shots, one without the tree branch on top. I decided to post the one with the branch. It does create a visual distraction but I sort of like it this way, reminds me of the other side of the river.

Miroir d’eau, Bordeaux

This is from a fairly recent trip to Bordeaux, where once again I ended up shooting around place de la bourse and miroir d’eau.

In the pyrenees

Not the most exciting peaks in the Pyrenees, but beautiful nonetheless.

By the Garonne

When time permits I like surfing the web for other people’s photoblogs and portfolios. These days I’ve been leaning towards old school photography, analog type work. The only camera I own is digital and I don’t really have much experience in processing analog photos. It’s definitely something I would love to do more of. For now though, I figured with a bit of “digital wizardry” I could try to imitate the end result. Photographers who work with analog cameras seem to take certain pleasure from processing their photos. I, too, enjoy a reasonable amount of processing, in my case digital. The process is, of course, completely different and in this particular case the end result isn’t quite analog, but it’s still fun 🙂

Marseille from afar

I’ve been meaning to post this photo for a while. This is a view of Marseille from the south of the city. This particular spot is where I took the photo of calanque de Sormiou. You can also see the Notre Dame de la Garde (on the hill), where I took the panoramic photo of Marseille.

If you like the photo please like and share 🙂

Garonne Panorama – Daily Commute

I’m gonna do something new today and post a photo from my phone. It’s incredibly how much camera phones have improved in recent years. A bit of colour editing and you get a wonderful image like this. It’s not of great quality and won’t do for a big print but it’s still a pleasant photo. This view is part of my daily commute and after nearly two years I’m still not tired of it

Les Calanques de Marseille

This is the area at the very south of Marseille. A truly beautiful place, this particular one is calanque de Sormiou. Hard to believe it is just a short drive away from the city. This is where the sea meets some of the rugged mediterranean coast. I imagine the sea is filled with boats around summer time, exploring every bit of the coastline. I happen to be there around christmas, with a bit of wind and moody clouds. Probably not the most popular time to go without the sun warming the sea. But it makes no difference to me, beautiful place no matter the weather.

Marseille

It’s been a while since my last post and oddly enough the blog has been getting more hits in my absence. These days I haven’t had much time to edit photos but here’s the one I did get my hands on. This is a pano shot of Marseille from Notre Dame de la Garde, which opens up a fantastic view of many parts of the city. Thanks to my very kind friend I got to spend christmas in Marseille and if my experience is anything to judge by the bad rep Marseille gets in France is not fully justified. To me it seemed a very diverse city with a lot of character and open people. I’ll be surely going back for more 🙂

Fall in Toulouse

I walk by this street every single day and  never get tired of it. Change of seasons brings a newer look.

Climbing in Ariège

The other day, thanks to a friend of mine, I made it out of Toulouse for a day of climbing. I can’t say I’m great at it but it’s always a lot of fun. Here’s a view from the top of the climb.
