July 2019 at the educational farm owned by friends Eric and Nanie Cottineau at Châteauneuf-la-Forêt in Limousin with a group of 7 friends.  On offer : multiple acres of meadow, the animal enclosures and the banks of a river - all teeming with insects and wild flowers.  Equipped with a 200mm lens for the timid creatures and a 100mm macro for the true macro shots, I passed a gorgeous day grovelling in the grass under a friendly sun - not too hot.  At lunchtime we ate local products and drank good wine under a large lime tree.   An event to repeat.

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.
