Normandy and the French Connection

These photographs are the result of a recent impromptu five day trip to Normandy in northern France. We caught the boat from Dover and just over an hour later landed in Calais. We planned to stay for one night a few miles down the coast in Bolougne sur Mer and then to travel south west to the picturesque  towns of Deauville and Trouville.

Time to relax

All we wanted to do was to relax, drink some nice french wine, eat some tasty french food and have a lot of fun.

“…things that were typically french…..”

Its easy to do all of that in France but for me I wanted something else as well, and that was to try and capture with my camera things that were typically french.

That was it! My theme for my pics was Frenchness!! In a global, multi-cultural, corporate world it can sometimes be difficult to find a specific quality such as this.

French culture

Often what I was looking for lay in landscape and  buildings, sometimes in people, occasionally objects and other times in small details such as wall and building colours. I’m not sure how successful I’ve been but it was a lot fun trying.
