Jazz à Paris

My brother was in Paris playing with his original Jazz Trio last week... with Julien on drums and Justin (who flew in especially from San Francisco) on the double bass. Great to see them play together again after a fair few years, and to see a host of friendly and familiar faces in the audience. It was also so nice to spend a couple of days in Paris on 'leisure time' and not for work... managed to squeeze in a few exhibitions, seeing friends and family, some touristing around Montmartre and testing out another camera (results soon if they are any good!)

Farewell Summer 2013

I'm freshly unpacked from my summer holiday in the South of France - one week in the Pyrenees and another in the Lot & Garonne. It was beautiful, relaxing, sporty, fun ... and I think I managed to consume enough rosé to last me till next summer... maybe. 

I took the Canon EF along for the ride and found her pretty fun to use.

Disposable in Montpellier

I was in Montpellier a few weeks ago for a pretty tiring job, shooting from 7am till 9pm for 3 days. Before catching my train home, I had a couple of hours to kill in town and so decided to buy a disposable camera and shoot with that as I couldn't stand the sight of my workhorse anymore. It was actually pretty good fun so I think I might do that more often.
