Grand architecture dizzies our perspective, particularly when we look up. Glass panels positioned at different angles distort the ironwork above, and the sky above them.

Throughout southern Brittany during July, rolls of wheat are on display throughout the farming countryside...
As the roof collapses to the ground, from the ground, vines crawl up the old and uncared for barn.
Up Stairs, A Path
Inside the abbey, passages abound, some rooms filled some empty, some with some without... sound

A life is a life, a talent unique but no less equal than other talents. To have a success, to hype, the life and talent become icon and reflects a mere shadow of the realaity enlarged from the stage.
Elegance in utility, while I wait...

Atop untold tons of aging concrete, the creative and dedicated heart of peace repurposes this dank space with barrels from which trees grow from.

There is light at the end of this tunnel, as way machines are replaced by artwork!

in the moment, at Paris Plage
it drew me to it, this bridge over the muddy river
Walking in the park, we came across many lovers, friends, and others unafraid to indulge the desire to share time together...
