My pics on Instagram :)

I started to use Instagram a year ago to share my sketches and watercolor paintings and I admit that I really love this community. So, I decided to use it, too, to share my pictures, of course. 🙂 I really love that the goal, on Instagram, is not to stay with your friends and acquaintances, Read More

Abstraction… Or illusion?!…

Yesterday night, I found an unexpected subject to shoot… Disclaimer : Please note that some of these abstract pictures can hurt some people feelings, depending on their imagination.   😉   I was wandering and, suddenly, I saw something and just thought : Oh, it’s pretty! It’s really interesting!… Yet, it was not really “something”. Read More

Urban colors

Let’s share some colorful urban atmospheres to cheer us up! 🙂 It’s not really a diptych, just two pictures showed side by side.   What do you think of this comtemporary Prince Charming (long hairs, intense look…), bringing flowers to his ladylove? (That’s a rebellious Prince Charming, as he doesn’t follow the arrow sign! 😉 Read More

Je suis Charlie…

Following the terrorist attack, in Paris, a few days ago, in the Charlie Hebdo building (a committed newspaper know especially for its satirical cartoons) and the death of 12 persons, I want to add my little own creation to support and talk about freedom… This little newspaper origami bird flying in front of my window Read More

Vegetable oyster

Yesterday morning, I shot, in my garden, this vegetable oyster. 🙂     When shooting, I just loved these water drops on nasturtium leaves and especially the big one. But when I uploaded my pics and looked at it, is seemed obvious to me that this photo could evoke an oyster. 😉 Is the analogy Read More

Creating meaning with diptychs and other multiple photo layouts

Following my previous article, “Simplification… to what extent ?”, I would like to talk about a really great way to use simple pictures and to give them more impact. I mean… diptychs and multiple photo layouts, of course!   A minimalist picture. Do you remember my previous minimalist picture with stones? Through this article, working Read More

Simplification… To what extent?

I was wandering, a few days ago, in a little town, searching for the perfect subject… The light was flat, I was cold and even a bit depressed, I admit. Thus, I was happy when I found this red graffiti on the wall. A bit of love and color doesn’t hurt, isn’t it?! 😉 Unfortunately, Read More

Selfie at the museum

First, I noticed there was some glass balustrades in this museum : things could reflect in it and things could be seen through it. Interesting, isn’t it?! 🙂 I noted, too, that the passers-by walking in front of the outdoors windows produced great silhouettes.     I tried various vantage points and finally decided that Read More
