The waste dump - 2018, June 11th

Welcome to this site, which presents my favourite photos.

I am a 60 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 !

If you have any comments or criticisms (positive ones !), don't hesitate to send a message to my e-mail : or leave one on the special "Comments" page at the end of this site.

Many thanks for having visited my site.

Amicably yours,
