hoist from the underside

The beauty of industry shows up from unexpected viewpoint. I've never seen a hoist picture like this... not so difficult to take and not risky at all.

Louise dreaming

child thoughts

Dark eyes and chocolate around the mouth, lost in her thoughts, feeling secure in mom's arms

granmother and grandaughter

This is one of many reasons why, after many years, i am still in love in my wife.

Generation dialogue

I love the balance between the dark left (sinistra) and the bright right (dextra) as a positive movement between mother and daughter, hard past and blured present. In the middle, a smooth light as a place of peace and dialogue. Even the glass of champagne invites to conversation :)

old trumpet player

Old trumpet player in a repetition session.

"les chatounets"

She was waiting for an ice cream. The light was very low and i used my 28-300mm lens. Not sure it was clear enough.

here is light

In a mental institution, the smile of an old man enlights the whole room.

closed horizon

Walking along a horse pen.

sunrise

Driving to the train station.

cold spring

Early spring, still cold and fragile.

over the fence

It looked like the clear clouds tried to escape from the fence and the big dark cloud.

windmill

The little windmill on the left is really bizarre.

peace

The regular stripes of the furrows and the feeble spot of light in the field make this picture very peaceful.
