A love story between a girl and a camera

My new camera made my Christmas. I feel like everything could happen at any time when I have it in my bag and everything around me becomes material for a photo. Insignificant moments are transformed into stories, series of impressions and emotions, observations and imagination merging. I’ve developed such a strong relationship with my Canon that I feel frustrated and sentimental if I don’t have it with me. I treat my camera like a friend that can make experiences fun and more intense. Learning to surmount the endless technical difficulties is also part of the thrill. My skills are strictly of the beginner’s variety but it doesn’t matter to me. I continue to live a stormy affair with photography regardless of my mediocre talent … and I have fun!

I took these pictures one early winter morning in Le Perche (lower Normandie).

Such beautiful photos. Crosses and trees also look fantastic when the suns going down, especially around 10:30pm in about August. I live in the country just outside Rennes (Brittany) and I love taking photos then...
