2017/11 Charente Maritime

On the 18th november 2017, à 6h30, with ten friends from the photo club OPPV, I set off for la Tremblade on the west coast of France.

An hour of general photography around la Tremblade (at low tide) was followed by the big moment of the day : the seafood restaurant and lots of oysters.

In the afternoon, helped by a local guide, we went to Meschers to see two places with the distinctive local fishing platforms called carrelets and then on to La pointe du Caillaud, for a splendid sunset over the Gironde estuary and a view of Talmont with it's cliff top church.

I started taking photographs at the age of 10, learning by my mistakes, and now, in retirement, I can at last dedicate the time I would like to my passion for photography.

In the countryside I'm inspired by the beauty of nature all around me here in Limousin and Dordogne : landscapes, yes, but principally the details, a leaf, an insect or even a still life composition.  In town architecture provides interesting subjects, but the most fascinating subjects are my fellow citizens, especially when captured in candid street photos, often in black and white.
