Sunrises and sunsets in the Grenadines

Sunrises and sunsets in the Grenadines

Last week, I showed you the different creatures I found on my way in the Grenadines and in Saint Lucia. But if there is very few wildlife on a boat, one of the advantages is the observation of the sunrises and sunsets. Can you tell the difference between them? So, when are you going?!

Grenadines’ fauna

A few months ago, I took real vacations: an pleasant trip to the Grenadines and Saint Lucia on a catamaran! For once, the goal was not taking photographs but enjoying life. Obviously, I could not resist taking snaps when I was not splashing around. Here are some local specimens (click on the images to see the full slides): Pets Brown Booby (Sula leucogaster) Magnificent Frigatebird  (Fregata magnificens) Other birds Tobago Cays iguanas Marine creatures Tortoises If all those adorable animals did not convince you of the Grenadines interest,...

3 days in Berlin – throughout the streets

The touristic places are not always easy to shoot: people everywhere and so many photos were taken that it will be difficult to take an outstanding shot. What you can do is observe people: Hawker between the Reichstag and the Brandenburg gate Musician in front of the Brandenburg gate Tourists in front of the Brandenburg gate Tourists on the Berlin wall track In Berlin, it is also impossible not to see the city's symbol. Here is a small collection: But the best to discover the city is to have a long walk and take time to sit in a park: Out of contrariness:...

3 days in Berlin – night strolls

  • May 4, 2016

Night offers a different perspective and reduces greatly the number of tourists, which can be helpfull to shoot symbols like these ones: Brandenburg Gate The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe Checkpoint Charlie Remains of the Berlin wall (or "selfies wall" during daytime) It's also at night that the Sony Center reveals its colour range the best: And that buildings sparkle: At last, there are atmospheres which simply do not exist at daytime: Next week, I'll share my daytime wandering!

3 days in Berlin – Mitte

  • April 27, 2016

I had heard the Friedrichstrasse shopping center offered interesting photo possibilities. I had to check and I found this: Right next to it is the Gendarmenmarkt place with its French and German churches that I dreamt of seeing again since my first visit about twenty years before. What's better than a flower pot to brighten up buildings?! The Deutscher Dom is also interesting to visit: A pretty graphic start then. Next episode with a night stroll very soon ;)

3 days in Berlin – the eclipse

  • April 20, 2016

In this article of March the 25th 2015, I promised to show you the photos I had just taken in the German capital "soon". I don't know what you expect with "soon" but I was certainly not thinking "in a year"! Unfortunately, I am even later with other subjects but "better late than never"! Let's start with the beginning, that's on March the 20th that I flew towards the East, date of a solar eclipse. A little disappointed of being in the air at the time of the eclipse, I was hoping to land before the end of the show, in spite of my failure to find specific glasses. I did and actually I was lucky...

Ich bin eine Berlinerin!

For once, here is a self-portrait taken in the Reichstag's dome in Berlin. This obviously announces photos of that city coming soon, but also probably a new work on selfies ;)

How to go on holidays as a photographer

A long exposure view of Manhattan: thanks to my gorillapod and shutter release   The problem as a photographer is that you can’t stop shooting, there’s always something that catches your eye. So, how can you travel without attempting to immortalise your destination, whilst still enjoying your holidays? It’s tricky gauging between returning home happy with the photos you’ve taken and not annoying your travel buddy! Up until this point, I only brought a DSLR, a lense, and a compact digital camera for when it’s complicated to have a large bag e.g. in museums. The result: perfect...
