"Photography is for me all about capturing the true emotion, personality of my subject, at a given moment of time. Unplanned shots are, to my point of view, the best.

It happened to me to have left accidentally my camera at home. How it is painful to miss the decisive moment..."

The benefits of the sea in Brittany

Next to Brest- Finistère Nord / France, you can swim all year round.

Often retirees meet at the Sainte Anne beach to walk or swim in the Manche. 

The therapeutic effects of the water there are many; to improve circulation and drainage, eliminate toxins and also aids to counter water retention.

The temperature of the water varies between 18 and 11 °C.

It is strongly recommended not to have a shower after this immersion in the iodine rich waters, in order to let the healing benefits work their magic and penetrate deeply into the skin.

Who is the Boss?!

One of my favorite moments.  Perched on the tummy of my master.
I have to confess, the view is awesome!!
This cushion makes me feel secure. I can also warn other dogs and protect my master.
Yeeaah! Who’s the boss?!
I belong to him and he belongs to me.
