#34. Camping in red and green

By pascaljappy | News

Making the most of the holidays up to the last minute, we camped in the foothills of the Alps, near Bargèmes, a little village photographed by Michael Kenna and in which his prints were being exhibited.

#27. Thames Industrial Sepia

By pascaljappy | News

One of the many features encountered along the Thames Walk between the Thames Barrier and Greenwhich is a gravel/tarmac factory that loudly crunches stones into powder, separating gravel sizes in various heaps and delivering its produce to nearby ships via elaborate pipes and belts. The whole caboogle is very geometrical and graphical. And dusty. I […]
