An outing with friends from PhotoLim87 to the valley of the apes near Poitiers.  The weather forecast was terrible leading up to the ddate and the day itself started with torrential rain about the time we needed to leave.  However, always optimistic, we set off nayway and, in the end, the day was really pleasant apart from a thundertorm at around 4pm.  We were even able to eat outside at lunchtime. 

The big apes are separated from the public by water filled ditches, so no bars or wire fences and the smaller monkeys are free to wander in the woods among the visitors.  An arrangement ideal for photographers.

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.
