A Selection Of My Best Travel Pictures

Fishermen on Inle Lake, Myanmar - Them rowing their boats with one leg contributed to making the lake a legend. This technique allows them to throw / pull their nets with both hands.

Travel Photography is as diverse as Travel Experiences can be, and this very diversity is probably its main specificity. You actually have to cover almost all possible fields of Photography: Portraits / People; Landscapes; Architecture; Wild Life; and maybe Sport in some countries.  Continue Reading →

La Semana Santa In Andalusia – A Selection Of 55 Pictures

Nazarenos during the processions of the “Semana Santa”, the Holy Week (Easter) in the streets of Cordoba, Spain

Andalusia is surely one of the cultural highlights when visiting Spain, if not Europe! A crossroad between Christianity & Islam during centuries, it is a subtle blend of both European & Arabic cultures. The Alhambra in Granada, the Mezquita in Cordoba & the Alcazar in Sevilla, only to name the most famous highlights, belong to the most magnificent buildings in Europe and in the world.

But experiencing this region during the Semana Santa, the Holy Week before Easter, was an even greater experience, something profoundly intriguing, disturbing, and fascinating. The numerous Processions we witnessed were absolutely bewildering. I honestly did not expect to experience something so stunning and so immensely different within Europe! Continue Reading →

Chimpanzee (Pan Troglodytes), Kibale Forest, Uganda

I visited Uganda twice.

The 3rd week, I spent in Jinja.

In January 2017, I spent 2 weeks and refocused on the National Parks I preferred most (except Bwindi, as I went Gorilla Tracking in Rwanda): Lake Bunyonyi, Queen Elisabeth National Park, Kibale Rain Forest, Murchison Falls National Park & Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary. Continue Reading →

My 30 Top Pictures On Instagram

Basilica Menor de la Inmaculada Conceptión, Jardín, Antioquia, Colombia

Yes, I am quite new to Instagram, though I now have been quite active over the last 8 to 10 months. With a few hundred pictures shared on this Social Media, it’s a good time to look back at the “feedback” (Likes & Comments”) received…

The results are actually quite unsettling, and quite different from the pictures I sell year after year through my Stock Image Agency. I clearly did not anticipate several trends: Continue Reading →

In January 2017, I spent 2 weeks in Rwanda. Of course I went to the Parc National des Volcans & Tracked Mountain Gorillas – This was one of my motivations for returning to Uganda & discovering Rwanda.

I also visited 4 different Memorials of the Genocide, one of the darkest episodes in Human History, each actually showing a different aspect of those horrid events: Kigali Memorial Center, Nyamata Genocide Memorial (near Kigali), Murambi Genocide Memorial (near Butare / Huye), Bisesero Genocide Memorial (near Kibuye / Karongi).
