Ducey Ville Étape

Ducey, Ville Étape. A town in the heart of the lower part of Manche. Integral to pilgrimage history and le Mont Saint Michel. Ducey, Ville Étape I little ways inland from my favourite spot, the bay of Le-Mont-Saint-Michel, around 10 miles, you’ll find the village étape of Ducey. The town itself is relatively small, andContinue reading “Ducey Ville Étape”

The Amazing History of Domfront

In today’s post we are looking at one of my favourite spots year-round – Domfront.

D-Day: Why Do We Remember?

Normally I do not mix work with politics, but living in Normandy means I am surrounded by history from ancient to modern, and it would be wrong of me to not share! So today’s post may get a bit political and topical so please remember the opinions viewed are my own and all facts willContinue reading “D-Day: Why Do We Remember?”

2019 in Books! (A very long review)

I tried to read a book a week for year…. here is what I read.

2 Months of Canadiana Living

To be truthful it’s been very hard to put into words the transition of Europe to North America, so apologies for the delay, and enjoy this rambling read… As a Brit moving to Canada didn’t seem that much of a move from the U.K. Oh how I was proven wrong. Of course the normal things ofContinue reading “2 Months of Canadiana Living”

Snapshots #12: Welsh Riviera

I love and hate having friends across the world, some closer to home than others, but always there to visit and talk to. North Wales is no exception to this rule, seeing as recently I’ve almost hopped over the border to England. This trip took me right onto the North Coast to Rhyl and Llandudno.Continue reading “Snapshots #12: Welsh Riviera”

Photography Tips #13: Prone to Target

*Little Blog Post on life and photography* Archery is not my first target sport. You could say that when I was younger I was attacked by paper, so now I shoot it in various ways, but to totally honest I don’t know why I do target sports. It all began back in the day ofContinue reading “Photography Tips #13: Prone to Target”

Aber-geddon: Rugby 7s

My fourth and final Rugby 7s as a University student. Time flies and it’s quite hard to believe that I’ve come this far in terms of photography and getting back into sports! From 2013 Rugby 7s in Aberystwyth, equipped with a 450d, a tamron 70-300mm lens and no proper grasp on sports photography to 2017,Continue reading “Aber-geddon: Rugby 7s”

Snapshots #11: Escape

It’s a common theme, my adventurous trips to get away from it all. Yet, I can not stress the importance of taking a step back from intense work life to enjoy the world and life we are given. As the last couple of months has been a series of heavy deadlines mixed with a series ofContinue reading “Snapshots #11: Escape”

Photography Tips #11: Capturing a Performance

There is nothing I like more than lying on the floor not having to worry about things. Maybe my nihilist approach to life does have its benefits as the angle from the floor under theatre lights does something magical for me. Living by the 45 degree rule in photography and by application the rest ofContinue reading “Photography Tips #11: Capturing a Performance”

Snapshots #11: Going Up North (Again)

A weekend away with no internet and good friends is something everyone should do throughout the year. Last time I was in the foggy Lake District with good friends and a rabbit. This time the escape took up right to the top of Northumberland in the seaside town of Seahouses. Being only a stone’s throwContinue reading “Snapshots #11: Going Up North (Again)”

Welsh Border Castle Adventure

As a farewell to 2016, and a premier adventure of the Welsh Borders, Tom and myself took the a470 and a479 along the borders down to Chepstow to check out the historic sights. For a Welsh Border Castle Adventure. Being December, a lot of places aren’t open to the public but are still able toContinue reading “Welsh Border Castle Adventure”

Gold Beach Landscape Photography

Gold Beach stretches along the Normandy coastline, famously harbouring Port Winston in the Second World War. And also of course being a British Landing Beach for D-Day. I love these beaches not just because of their incredible history, but also of their eerie stillness, flatness and their failure to not shine golden in the sun,Continue reading “Gold Beach Landscape Photography”
