2020-01-16  UNKNOWN PLACE IN FRANCE

With the rental car starting from Nantes and driving to Nice, my wife Karin and I passed so many villages and landscapes, that I cannot remember where I shot that photo. I like the picture. The color of the old hut combined with the tree and the blue sky, where the moon shines through, is a beautiful combination.

2019-12-11  SITTING IN THE GRASS

The unique promenade in Bordeaux. People who make themselves comfortable in the high grass. On the other side, the street dancers. A pleasant illumination of the bridges, paths, and bicycle lanes. A very relaxed nightlife in Bordeaux.

2019-11-28  BORDEAUX AND THE RIVER GARONNE

The reflections on the River Garonne from the opposite side of the shore cover the whole width. This was my photo session of all directions. The river in front of me, behind me the public dancers and on the right, the grass ways with the beautiful lanterns. The last two pictures I have already posted.

2019-11-23  LITTLE VILLAGE IN FRANCE

My wife and I were on the Autobahn, driving to Avignon. I didn’t remember the village, which was located on a higher hill, about fifty miles from St. Tropez. Since we were thirsty and hungry, we left the road and made a break. The old town was built to take pictures. Instead of a 15 minutes break, we were there for about an hour. We came back to the car with dozens of new photographs and strengthened with good coffee.

2019-11-21  DANCEFLOOR IN BORDEAUX

The shadows with the dancing people give magnificent scenery for photographing. I have never seen that before, that people are dancing spontaneously in a public place. For French culture, Bordeaux is an excellent representative.

2019-11-17 VILLAGE NEAR NICE

This village was near Nice; I can’t remember the name. But it perfectly represents the French Riveria, the old alleys with restaurants and bars on one side, and the sea on the other side. Sitting outside and smell the sea breeze on a warm autumn evening.

2019-11-05 THE FRENCH CHATEAU

When I was in the Medoc with my wife Karin, the daily tour was driving from Chateau to Chateau and shooting photos. A unique experience was seeing the extensive wine gardens where the Bordeaux wine grows. Every few kilometers, one Chateau follows after the other. Some offer wine tasting, those I liked most. 🙂

2019-09-24 TOULOUSE CITY HALL

My wife Karin was standing in the line for ice cream. I used the time for photo shooting in Toulouse. I had the city hall in front of me and chose a wide-angle lens to capture the big building. As my wife came back with the ice cream, I had already finished my shootings. It was funny ice; the French icemen made patterns of hearts and flowers of the ice toppings, which made eating it even more enjoyable.

2019-08-25 BRIDGE IN TOULOUSE

The public 24-hour bikes in French cities are an excellent thing. Often the price is only 1 euro. The best thing is to get the photo spots stress-free; usually, a basket is attached to where the photo bag fits perfectly. We were able to do so in Toulouse an extensive tour in the evening and stop according to desire and mood.

2019-08-05 LIGHT SHOW IN AVIGNON

The Palais des Papes brings a light show every evening in the vast courtyard. My wife Karin and I were not sure if we should attend. We decided to do it and did not regret it. I can tell you; this is an excellent multi-media show of light, projected movies on the palace walls, lasers, and an incredible soundscape.
