Why are you so scared and creeping around?

July was definetely the coldest July ever. it rained 26 days. So few people were swimming or chilling on the beach, obviously. But it was a great month to walk around for long exposure.

Beyond the shadow of today

When summer is over, when tourists have left the beach. Everything seems to be abandonned. Quietness, coldness and lonelyness, means happyness.

Black and tan fantasy

First long exposure with my old Mamyia RB67, and expired Tri-x 320. Since almost 4 years everything was sleeping in a locker. The need of going back to the roots gets bigger during the last months. Once again Philippe convinced me to put a film in the filmback. This stuff is heavy, but not heavy enough to not move during the exposure, that's why it's a bit blurred. It was really windy, lighthouses were flashing at 90. Anyway, my scanner is not as good as it used to, it's getting old too. It was a nice sunset in a great place.

Razor wire spinning around

Hard to believe, but it's been a dark sunset. Light was not as flashy as it could be sometimes. Anyway big clouds strikes again. And wind blows from the north. Summer is probably over. But did we have a summer this year ?

Transmission data terminated

Across the lake Leman, boats are crossing from France to Swiss, with border workers in. At the end of the day this place is like a hive. I took this photo few minutes before the boat arrives from Lausanne. A dozen people wait to go back to Switzerland.

I don't need another change

Photo Droïd ( took this photography -It's a kind of cross-work of his photo "Half of Century". We sometimes do with our photos. It's pretty funny to see how things could be different. Anyway, it's another sunset on the Jura seen from the french side of the Lake Leman.

Birdgirl in a cell phone

I'm never bored about waking up early and walk on the shore of the lake. It's so big, so quiet. Philippe and I, didn't met anyone until 13:00. It was so peaceful. But when sun is hot, it could be hell.
