I decided to to take a break from being a photographer and so just spent the best part of June cycling through France with Christine, from the north coast at St Malo to Bergerac in the Dordogne – about 1200km of eating Goat’s cheese, bread and flies, and camping by rivers. Countless mosquito bites, coffees and beautiful countryside. It was fab to be away in the fresh air without always looking at my watch and rushing around, and getting some serious miles in my legs…..
Hey! And the French were lovely even though my French is more School-Infant than School-Boy.
I took my excellent little Lumix GH2 with the 14mm and 20 mm lenses – nice and light and great quality.
Now back in Brighton to tons of photography work the next couple of months with some great portraits, headshot work and commercial jobs booked in. Already my tan is fading!
Another boring village in the dordogne
We visited our run-down shack in the forest
We picked wild Strawberrys at the roadside using Christine’s extra-long hand
I practised breathing in and tightening my stomach muscles
Er, thanks but no thanks! I’m quite happy with the one I’ve got….
