We had to go to Aubenas this week to collect a part for the microlight. Aubenas is in the southern part of the Ardéche department in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region of France. It’s quite beautiful and a great place if you want to go rock climbing or canoeing. Unfortunately we didn’t have much time for photography … Continue reading On a Dash to the Ardéche
Three different densities from our farmer’s market in France: Delicious walnut bread, a wedge of 30 months matured Comté cheese, and local green grapes. What more could you want for lunch! Weekly Photo Challenge: Dense Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Dense

The buildings rise in stages up the side of a cliff on the right bank of the Alzou river which runs between rock walls 120metres in height. Flights of steps ascend from the lower town to the churches, a … Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Depth
Chateau de Losse I took this from the back seat of hubby’s microlight (ultralight/ULM) some time ago. The first time I looked at it I just loved the shadows of the trees. Continue reading More Shadows
In memory of the twelve journalists and cartoonists wantonly slaughtered at the offices of their newspaper ‘Charlie Hebdo’ on Wednesday morning. In support of France, the country I live in, and free speech. The men who carried out this atrocity have apparently said they want to die as martyrs, but they seem to have … Continue reading Je suis Charlie!
