I’m back home from France now and as I mentioned I got a Canon EOS 650D before I left. I bought the 18-135mm kit lens but it wasn’t in stock before I left so the Camera Centre kindly let me take an 18-55mm kit which I’ll swap later this week for the 18-135mm. While in France I went out of my way to use the camera and took well upwards of 1200 pictures over the seven days. Obviously I won’t post them all here but there are some I was very happy with.
The first photo is of the pews in the Notre Dame Cathedral in Rodez. The entire region of France was on a pilgrim trail so there were a lot of big, beautiful churches near by. The cathedral in Rodez was particularly impressive. I really liked the look of the row upon row of empty seats. Although there obviously wasn’t a mass on, I felt it was a slight commentary on the state of the church…
This one was taken on the bridge in Espalion, a small town near where we were staying. As we were exploring the bridge it started to rain so Eva started walking back towards the car ahead of me. I had my camera out taking touristy shots and took the opportunity to snap a picture of her walking away. I’m happy with how it turned out!
Eva has a tea addiction. It’s something that we have to face together. Even in high 20 or low 30 degree heat, sitting by the pool, she was rarely without a mug of tea. Proof?
The final photo for this post is another one of Eva’s back. The big advantage my new camera has over my old one is burst mode. We went out for a cycle and I stopped and got Eva to cycle past me. I took 4 or 5 photos as she went by and this one worked out the best!
There’s still 1196 photos that I could post here so there’ll likely be another few up sometime soon.
