Don’t Give Up On Me

Today for the first time since a couple of months, I got on my knees in my garden to photograph. I have to admit that since I invested in a dark piece of fabric, I almost solely focused my floral photography inside and with this dark background; it was new and fun, I had a blast. But that was before I met the silence on holiday in Jonquières, France. Since I’m back I need to go back to my roots, I needRead more

Memories of Gold, Jonquières summer 17

This summer, hubby, kids and I went to the south of France, in the Hérault province, for a couple of days. We stayed there four nights and three days and this little amount of time was long enough to bring back so much memories and emotions to me. We stayed at Château de Jonquières a beautiful castle in the middle of vineyards with enchanting guest rooms, succulent breakfast with homemade yogourts and jams and last but not least delicious wine they produceRead more

There are so much things to say about this place and so much things to photograph that one visit and one post on this blog would not be enough. I could resume it to one word, wonderful and I could add an other one, peaceful. Here are photos of some of the wonderful butterflies you can see in their butterfliesRead more

And the point is, to live everything

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.” RainerRead more

I wish I knew how

“I wish I knew how It would feel to be free I wish I could break All the chains holding me” “Well I wish I could be like a bird in the sky How sweet it would be If I found I could fly I’d soar to the sun And look down at the sea And I sing ’cause I know How it feels to be free.” Lyrics Nina Simone Photography all rights reserved Carole ReyRead more
