FRANCE!

This fall, Diane and I spent ten days in France.  We were visiting our friends Richard and Robert, who live in Paris.  After a few days in the city, we went on a train trip with them to southwest France- Basque territory in the Pyrenees.  We spent a night in Bayonne, took another train up into the mountains to the small town of Saint Jean-Pied-de-Port, then a van ride to Pau, where we spent two nights.  Another train ride brought us back to Paris for a few more nights.

Paris

During the days in Paris, we spent a lot of time walking, and on two of the days, I explored on my own.  Not speaking french was challenging, but not really that bad.  With maps and Metro tickets I got to see much of the central city.

I am a fine art landscape and nature photographer living and working on Cape Cod. The area, and my familiarity with it, leads to compositions of light, weather, and frequently water in its many forms. I share my gallery with my wife Diane Heart, whose porcelain and raku pottery blends beautifully with my work
