Red

It’s been a while. 4 months. Eventful months. Difficult months. Uncle died. Mother died. Resurfacing. Seeing what I can do off of robot mode. Hard to get back into the swing of the day to day. Hard to stay focused on work, projects, ideas. Harder now to care and easier at the same time. Loss has this effect on me. I know what I…

Winter Trees : France

Shot from a moving train, the TGV up to Paris. Just spent the day there to meet a friend and returned home the same night. It’s rare for me to do so much travel in a day, near seven hours, but didn’t want to miss my friends passage through France.

Waiting for a Train

Gare St. Roch, Montpellier France

Train Station

Gare St. Roch in the center of Montpellier, France. This is a waiting area in the station, but also where people come and go via escalator to get to upstairs to buy tickets and find their way.

You can eat here to recharge yourself, recharge your phones, computers, tablets. It’s a scene that changes…

Transportation

Tramway travel in Montpellier, France. Sometimes it’s easy and sometimes it’s not. It’s not so easy when the ac doesn’t work and the tram is crowded. Taking photos on the tram is an exercise in working around the high dynamic range of some images. Dark inside the tram, with harsh light coming through the windows. Trying to compose an image can be difficult with…

Lost in Thought

Pensive. She was in her world. Walking in the street but not really there. It was early morning. Streets busy with people going to work. But this little corner was all her own.
