A week in France, travelling light

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

    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:

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

  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.
