The famous passage to Noirmoutier-en-Ile, a small island in the west part of France. This passage is covered by water twice a day during the high tide. It was part of the Tour de France in 2005 and caused some problems for the riders. If you're ever here, make sure to time your arrival/departure accordingly! Photo taken in May 2001.

Shoes, glorious shoes

This one is for Genie at Paris and Beyond. She showed one of the beautiful window displays at the Repetto shop in Paris a few days ago. I found this picture of their shop in my archives.

Chateau d'Edern

Edern is a small village outside Quimper in Brittany, France. This manor used to be the vocal point of the town, but has unfortunately gone a bit to ruin. It is owned by Jean-Edern Hallier and is not open to the public. This photo was taken in 2000, I wonder what this place looks like today.

Trees and water

A monochrome shot of a flooded pathway in Angers, France. I studied at the business school tin this city and this shot was taken with my very first digital camera, an Olympus C2000Z.It used AA batteries and you could only take about 10 shots or so before they were depleted. When I look back at these shots, the quality is not very good either. Luckily technology has progressed! I'll have more Olympus shots coming up in the next few weeks. Photo taken in 2001.
