The Stare

Birthday with Wolves … and a Fox

We had decided to celebrate my birthday by signing the whole family up for a ‘Breakfast with Wolves’ event at the Montreal Ecomuseum near our house. While taking pictures in a zoo seems to really be against the whole ‘wild life’ photography image, I brought my camera to practice. Carrying your camera everywhere is one of the top five rules to improving your photography, so I packed a few lenses (longest focal lengths possible). We arrived early and were welcomed […]

Rawdon Waterfalls – Winter Phootshoot

It had recently snowed and I had a new camera, so it was time to head down to Rawdon for a seasonal Photoshoot. I had a few places I wanted to revisit (Rawdon Waterfall being one of them), so I had an itinerary planned. I didn’t have anyone to head out with me, so I was going it alone. I stopped by a few locations on the way that I had spotted last year. There were these interesting red crops […]

Krakow Nights

Poland Photoshoot

After France, I traveled to Poland to meet up with my parents and brother. Being of Polish decent, it was the perfect time to visit my father’s birthplace.  I landed in Poland without any incident and walked out to be greeted by my father and uncle. We traveled back to the hotel where I dropped of my luggage and headed out with the family to visit the old city. It became apparent that I wouldn’t have much time to really […]

The Watcher

Day 6 – Beaune to Paris

So after a really uneventful evening in Beaune, I got in the car and started to take side roads to the the first location. As I followed the lovely lady on the GPS as she dished out commands, I saw a great chateau on a hill, so I headed towards it.  The sign said Chateauneuf so I got a little excited thinking it was the ‘Chateauneuf’, but it wasn’t. I later looked into it and it is more in the […]

Thursday Afternoon

Day 5 – Annecy to Beaune

I woke up early and left the hotel with the intent to drive into Switzerland to connect with my original route. It meant that I wouldn’t get Mont Blanc, or a great castle on Lake Geneva, but I was a little ‘castled out’ anyway. I drove past Geneva towards Lausanne, where I turned north to head back into France. My first stop was shortly after Lausanne, so I turned onto smaller roads early in the day. The first location I […]

Night Castle of Annecy

Day 4.2 – Annecy

I arrived in Annecy, checked into the hotel and started to walk around. The one thing I must say about Annecy is it is a beautiful town. I could probably have spent 5 days here taking pictures. It has a very medieval feel and is sort of a mini-Paris mixed with a little Geneva and a very little bit of Venice. It was pretty busy with tourists, and would have been great for street photography. Not really being good at […]

Day 4.1 – Grenoble to Annecy

In the previous post, I wrote about the specific shot that this trip was based on. Afterwards, I continued on and quickly arrived at my second spot. My initial research showed it would be difficult to get a good place to stop, but I found a rest area that had a good overall view of the subject. I could tell as I set up my camera that it wouldn’t be anything spectacular, but it was at this point where I […]

Day 3 – Lyon to Grenoble

This was to be my easiest drive. A quick 3hrs to Grenoble, stopping by one location then taking a pretty cool road that hung over a cliff. I woke up without setting an alarm, had breakfast and left the city when I was ready. The GPS had been a little weird yesterday, so I just punched in the first location and went directly there without a pre-defined route. The new route took me close to Grenoble before heading west towards […]

Day 2 – La Roque-Gageac to Lyon

I was pretty excited to start day two and woke up before sunrise. I brought my heavy bag down to the lobby to find it dark and empty. I totally didn’t think of this problem. I packed my bags into the car and went back to my room for about 30min – then waited in the lobby. I probably would have been better to drive around and look for some spots while I waited, but I didn’t think it would […]

Castle in the Sky

Day 1 – Saintes to La Roque-Gageac

I woke up Sunday morning exhausted since I was up until 5am at the wedding reception and thought we had to be out of the hotel at 10:00. This affected my willingness to take pictures throughout the day, but more about that later.  Having a good 4hr drive to get to the first hotel, I left earlier (1pm) and took the main highway further than planned. While this skipped some of the locations I mapped out, It also allowed for […]
