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:

    The house

    NIKON D700    ---    35mm    f/4.0    1/2500s    ISO 200

    My step-dad Kevin. I love this man.

    NIKON D700    ---    50mm    f/2.0    1/500s    ISO 200

    NIKON D700    ---    50mm    f/2.5    1/8000s    ISO 200

    In the pool with Jess

    NIKON D700    ---    50mm    f/3.2    1/3200s    ISO 200


    NIKON D700    ---    50mm    f/3.2    1/8000s    ISO 200

    Apres dog-bite pour Jess:

    NIKON D700    ---    50mm    f/2.0    1/640s    ISO 1000

    The restorative power of a Pez:

    NIKON D700    ---    50mm    f/2.2    1/800s    ISO 200

    Nic, catching some rays:

    NIKON D700    ---    50mm    f/2.5    1/8000s    ISO 160

    Some flowery bits and bobs:

    NIKON D700    ---    35mm    f/2.5    1/6400s    ISO 200

    NIKON D700    ---    50mm    f/2.2    1/5000s    ISO 200

    NIKON D700    ---    35mm    f/3.2    1/2500s    ISO 200

    NIKON D700    ---    35mm    f/3.2    1/2500s    ISO 200

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

    NIKON D700    ---    35mm    f/8.0    1/800s    ISO 200

    NIKON D700    ---    35mm    f/8.0    1/1250s    ISO 200

    (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:

    NIKON D700    ---    35mm    f/3.5    1/2000s    ISO 200

    NIKON D700    ---    35mm    f/2.5    1/2000s    ISO 200

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

    NIKON D700    ---    35mm    f/2.5    1/400s    ISO 200

    An equally mental cockerel:

    NIKON D700    ---    35mm    f/2.5    1/1600s    ISO 200

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

    NIKON D700    ---    35mm    f/2.5    1/320s    ISO 200

    NIKON D700    ---    35mm    f/2.5    1/1000s    ISO 200

    NIKON D700    ---    35mm    f/2.5    1/1250s    ISO 200

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

    One welcome:

    NIKON D700    ---    50mm    f/2.8    1/2000s    ISO 400

    and one not so welcome:

    NIKON D700    ---    35mm    f/3.5    1/200s    ISO 640
  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.
