The "Castle Sea-Walk" of La Napoule

6

When the springtime comes back, it's such a great pleasure to have a walk along the sea. And if you like castles as well, so you'll find both at La Napoule.

La Napoule is a very nice little city near of Cannes. You can have a walk through the old city but what I really prefer is the “castle walk” along the sea… Come with me, I’ll show it to you:

On the port of La Napoule there’s a little beach and a very impressing medieval castle, the “Clews castle”. It was built in the XIVth century but after 5 centuries it was only a ruin. An American couple named Henry and Mary Clews bought it in 1918 and decided to re-built a “medieval style” castle. It’s a dreamy place, directly on the sea and you can of course visit the castle and the beautiful gardens.

Let’s go on with our walk: we need to follow a narrow way to walk between the castle and the sea.
Then we’’ll come to a very nice charming little beach, not the kind of beach to be overcrowded by tourists in summer like in Nice…. Walk away the sea, look at the infinite wide blue sea & sky, listen to the seagulls, lay down on the beach and just relax……. (if you know a better way to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon, tell me… ;))

After this relaxing time, we’ll go further to the port of “La Raguse”, very narrow and nice one. The 2nd castle is just above and is called “Agecroft castle” re- built 1911 by Harry of Lengley, an English man in love with the Cote d’Azur.
Finally we’ll take the way down to La Napoule and find again our departure point.

I really recommend to do this little walk if you’re in this area, among the best of all the charming seaside walks I know here :))

    Maybe not everyone can travel, so LOMOLOCATIONS are a good way to do it.
    Recently, I read a sentence that said: "The books are the travel to those that can not catch the train."
    We could replace "books" by "lomolocations".
    Thank you for this trip.
    Congratulations.

For instance, that the ground goes on to infinity. Or that they have never been so tired and amazed all at once.

    Long Exposures Around Europe with the Minitar-1 Art Lens

    One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.

    He will respectfully ask for a photo session. He does not outline why, and if you are shy, you will wonder what he has seen in you. He greets reluctance with understanding and a resounding yes with an equal amount of enthusiasm. When the day comes, he will treat you like a collaborator. And whenever he talks about the outcome—comely photos of what looks like your most confident self—he will always call you a muse.

    Cinematographer Michal Dabal on the Petzval Lens

    Here’s what happens before we interview a photographer. We gush about the work though we have yet to find out the cameras and processes behind the brilliant composition or the light architecture. And even when they haven’t used a Lomo camera, we feature them anyway. But every once in a while comes a pro who uses one of our premium lenses at work and our fun cameras off-duty. This makes us mighty glad, more so when their images are good and worth sharing. We count cinematographer Michal Dabal's work among them.

    Geoffrey Berliner On Photographic Processes, Old and New

    Geoffrey Berliner is the Executive Director of the Penumbra Foundation and the Center for Alternative Photography in New York. As the head of an organization whose goals are 'to be a comprehensive resource for photographers at any level' and 'to continue to publicize the impact photography has had and continues to have on culture, history and the arts,' his exposure to photographic materials -from 19th century gems to modern equipment- is so extensive, one cannot even begin to fathom just how much knowledge and experience this man has acquired. His collection of over 2000 vintage Petzval lenses is unparalleled, and the object of envy of both traditional and contemporary photographers. Although such lenses are reputed to require a certain level of skill to be used, Berliner seems to manage them with so much ease, producing splendid results.
