THE MAGIC OF SUMMER

While I was in Switzerland and France I missed a London heat wave, with temperatures going as far up as 33 degrees. I’ve been back a week and summertime is no longer a reality, I’ve said farewell to sunny days and my tan. I’m posting several photos I took in Cassis to evoke a little bit of the South of France on this blog, a stark but highly pleasing contrast to my city environment. A gentle tribute to a place I love. I hope you will like them. I’m seriously interested in photography and all its aspects, but I tend to focus essentially on illusory and romantic landscapes. What I like is observing and recording unstaged sceneries, with no preparation. An exploration in progress.
PS: Posting pictures of myself is always a challenge as I think it disrupts the vitality and balance of my blog. I’ve been doing it occasionally because I know that readers want to make a journey to the heart of the character/blog author but it is a huge undertaking. I absolutely love writing and I’m keen to concentrate on that activity.

I took all the pictures except for the portraits courtesy of my husband!
For those of you who are interested I’m wearing a Maje biker jacket and vintage purple hippie dress from ebay, the turquoise beaded necklace was made by the lovely Carlen Altman of Jewish Rosaries.
Also wearing a classic French red and white Breton top from Armor Lux with my gold Pamela Love snake ring and gold Aurélie Bidermann “peace” ring.

Your photos are just absolute perfection. Amazing. That red light is crazy. I'd rather be in France than in the London heat wave (train at midday was disgusting) Oh & you have just beautiful style...

Don't give up on the London summer :) There's a little sunshine around today amidst the rain. Your pictures are gorgeous... I'm tempted to grab my boyfriend and flee to across the Channel for a quick dose of culture and fun. You look gorgeous! Where is your leather jacket from? xoxo

The colors are almost haunting, especially in the first two photos. They look like the aftermath of a fire, with a beautiful glowing light. Thanks for sharing these!

And you look so lovely! xo

Your husband's a great photographer (well and you're a great model). I'm in the process of doing a series of portraits of my wife, you should get your man to do that also!
