Extract of the show "8 Femmes" - Geneva, 2019.05.11

Welcome to this site, which presents my favourite photos.

I am a 62 year old amateur photographer living in the suburbs of Geneva (Switzerland).

I only started to use a "real" camera, which my father lent to me, at the beginning of 2016.  (I had previously used a simple smartphone for photography). I later acquired a Canon EOS5D MarkIV to be able to use all the lenses that my father bequeathed to me.

As an architect, I am particularly attracted by buildings or bridges with strong contrasts, colours and interesting details, but also like to focus on small objects such as a flower or a piece of electrical wire.

I would describe myself in three words : passionate, curious and eclectic !

Amicably yours,

Photography class PCL 2008

This book was created by my father in 2008 when he was 85 years old (!) and still an active member of the Photo Club of Lausanne (PCL).
A must to read, even if some subjects are a little bit obsolete
