A journey of enduring love

Write what you know. Isn’t that what aspiring novelists are told? Well, I’ll take the advice this summer. I won’t write a book but I do love words and hope that mine can capture a time and a place with precision. My enthusiasm for France is insatiable. Discovering its landscapes and meandering through the streets of small villages and towns, experiencing delicious food elaborated in great simplicity, the architecture, the artistic explorations the country has on offer, the café culture and absurdly grumpy waiters, the old ladies always evoking a sort of Chanel like stylistic consistency, the literary high life, Nouvelle Vague films, the beautiful boys and girls and the sometimes dynamic conservatism of its population. I’m making an album of snapshots and mini narratives on this blog to keep things as clear and fresh as yesterday.
A journey of enduring love.

I took the pictures in Normandie and the South of France

I have a bit of a 'south coast of France' desire also, especially at this time of year, when the British summer is fast disappearing. It's the atmosphere, the possibilities for people watching and the orange light, I think.
