Brittany – France

Gate and Staircase, Fort La Latte - Brittany France

Gate and Staircase, Fort La Latte

We just got back home after spending the past couple of weeks in France on a workshop with a terrific group of photographers.  There is no way that I will be processing most of the images from that trip for a while, I still have 10000’s from other trips,  but I just couldn’t resist processing a couple of the images from the Cap Frehel region of Brittany. These are of Fort La Latte, a 14th Century Castle, which is just incredible to think that this was built almost 200 years before North America was discovered!

Namibia is best know for it’s spectacular sand dunes, incredible variety and concentrations of wildlife and barren landscape. It is also home to over 2 million people.

This photo was taken under less than ideal photographic conditions, the mid-day African sun! And shot on Velvia slide film.

This is a common sight in Namibia, women walk for great distances carrying and balancing all sorts of things on their head.

This last picture was more or less a grab shot as we were driving by, only after I saw the photo did I realize that the young girl on the left was pregnant.
