Postcards From France: Finally, Provence!

PFA_France
WooHoo! Provence!

Little things make me happy. Like finally making to Provence in France… a place I’ve dreamed of visiting for most of my life. (Lots of bucket list items getting checked off on this adventure!).

Of course it means photographing! Mid day. In a new place. How to go about it with no regrets? Well, I’d share a few thoughts on how to look at a moment like this, should you ever find yourself in a similar geeked-out moment and want to capture it so that it’ll tell your story and bear your voice!

Les Images de Provence

So many images, so little time! Driving through an area as picturesque as Provence is definitely an eye-popping experience. Wait. That sounds painful. And Provence is anything but!

Here are but a few of the sights that caused unsightly slam-on-brake syndrome! hahahah…

  1. Excellent. Presentation ideas are great (would have never thought of theme). Keep photos coming our way, please.

  2. Love when photographs take me “there” and you have done that with these pics. Really captured that sense of place that is Provence. And what we all aspire to do with our travel pics. Thanks for sharing!
