A week in France, travelling light

Discussion in 'Wanderlust and Travel' started by Radiohead, Aug 25, 2008.

  1. Away from the world of weddings last week. I paid my first visit to a place my folks bought 4 years ago and have been renovating. It's about 90 minutes west of Toulouse and is so quiet it's not true.

    Anyway, not many people around so I wandered and just snapped what was around me. I travelled very light so all D700 and either Nikkor 35/2 or 50/1.4:

    Realising why I don’t/can’t do landscapes:

    (parents’ house just to the right of the 4 trees in the centre)

    We visited a camel farm run by a lovely English couple just outside Plaisance:

    This Llama was mental and had a real hard-nut stare:

    An equally mental cockerel:

    Week old piglets who’d lost their mother during the birth and were being hand-reared:

    And for some reason we were visited by two species throughout the week.

    One welcome:

    and one not so welcome:

  2. Great shots

    Love the B&W conversion. Thanks for bringing back some memories.

    Yesterday they did not all load... I am mainly using my iPhone to connect, now I am on my laptop and ... Well until we find a place to stay it will be like this.

    Man... I now wish I was still there for another extra couple of days.
