My camera seems to have become an extension of my amateur photographer eyes! All photos prior to 2007 are scanned and were taken with a Fuji camera.

Concert, Pike Place Market, Seattle, 2008

On One A Day - Mostly Seattle, Chuck Pefley posted some great stuff about this band whom I saw in Seattle last year in March, with all accompanying explanations. Have a look by clicking here.
So when I saw Chuck's photo I thought I would post mine, no explanations needed now!

The first picture is proof that digital cameras have existed for centuries.

Little video of the medieval fair in Pont-Croix, Finistère, France, 2009


video

I'm really not much of a filmer and the VERY poor quality is here to show it but I thought this would give you a general idea before I continue posting photos of the medieval fair at Pont-Croix, held during Easter weekend 2009. The church, Notre-Dame de Roscudon, is a typical example of granite churches in this region of France. Typical and beautiful.


Please excuse the presence of a (bad) video on what is essentially a photo blog.

Away for a few days

Baie des Trépassés -the bay of the dead- in Brittany.
Weather permitting, I shall go there.

Life is fragile. Whit would have been 25 today.
This, incidentally, is not a b&w photo.

At 20:30 hours yesterday evening, at home

It was 2:30 pm in Cincinnati, Ohio, the beginning of Whitney Smith's memorial service. I didn't know Whit but I have been getting to know his father for whom I have much respect. Whit was too young to die and I hope he is at peace with himself now. His was not an ordinary life and those of you who are open-minded might want to read Superfriends without feeling the need to judge. Judging is easy. Trying to understand is far more difficult. Whit was a gifted and intelligent writer with a good sense of humour and sarcasm. The link to Whit's blog is right here on this page, if you scroll down a little.
Rest peacefully Whit.
Jeff, don't give up.

Magnolia near home, France, 2009

This post is dedicated to Whit, who died yesterday far too young. All my thoughts are with his father.
