This photo could be my last photo made in the streets of Aix-en-Provence. At the time I write this very short blog, a page turns. I am finishing today my last day of work in Aix. I go directly find for a few days my beloved family on the island of Reunion. Yesterday, going to work and heading to a restaurant where I had to find some friends, I continued to do what I did for the last 3 years. I had my Ricoh on my wrist as usual and I captured here and there some scenes in the streets of my city. What’s funny is that all the pictures I made yesterday, I post-processed them in B&W.
I did most of the photos between 7pm and 8pm and it was sorely lacking light and the B&W was needed because in color, the photos would have been awful … Everything had started in monochrome for me and it had to be so for finish. I study the possibility of switching to the Ricoh GR 3 for better performance in low light. Case to follow …
I will try to make a blog more consistent to summarize these almost 4 years roaming the streets of Aix-en-Provence. I’m always looking to the future and I’m pretty excited to see what I can do in Reunion Island. It’s also a big leap into the unknown because there was some comforting routine in Aix. Before that, I would have the opportunity to spend 3 weeks in Toulouse before focusing on my island.
All photos were taken yesterday with the Ricoh GR.
