    Five Days, Four Kinds of Film and Three Cameras on the French Riviera

    It had been five years since my last visit to the Côte d'Azur in France. During this period, I took to film photography again. And so for my return, I was looking forward to capturing, with my handy film cameras, some of that special light and blue sea that had drawn so many artists to the Riviera.

    The "Baou" of St Jeannet

    What is a "Baou"?? In the provincial dialect (that means spoken mostly in the south-east part of France) it means "mountain peak" and there are 2 beautiful ones not so far from Nice, called "Baou of St Jeannet" and his twin the "Baou of La Gaude". Let's discover the first one! :)

    The Pier of Nice

    The pier of Nice is one of my favorite place to shoot: a beautiful place, the sea, boats & ferries, people, well, a perfect place to make pictures! The pier of Nice is located at the entry of the port and is a fascinating place to have a walk, meet with friends, have some nice time to sit down to look at the sea and the boats...

    The Dangers of Mutton Street

    They say that you shouldn't take your wallet in these streets or park your car nearby, cause there is a chance that you'd get pick pocketed and someone will steal the tires off your car. Interested? Surely made me interested as hell, so Partha, Anondo and I went off to Mutton Street.

    One Afternoon in Quito

    Located in the province of Pinchicha, Quito is the capital of Ecuador. It is a seemingly small capital, but with an incredible colonial architecture found in almost all the streets, several tourist information points, there are also many points to observe the city from the top, and one with a mechanical park beside it.

  • Nice (Charms of The Old City)

    Nice (Charms of The Old City)

    One of the main charms of Nice (besides the sea, of course) is the old city, "la vielle ville" or "vieux Nice" like the people here call it. It's a typical old Mediterranean city from the middle ages which has supported very few modifications since the 15th century (at least). As it is a main tourist attraction, there's a regular effort of the city to maintain in good state the architectural heritage of this old city and the whole area is really in a very good conservation state.

    War memorial of Nice

    You can find war memorials everywhere in France, every city or village has their own and they were mostly built after the WW1, as young people from everywhere in France died during this terrible war or collective massacre (over 1,5 million french victims and over 9 million victims in all...!)

    Coco Beach (Nice)

    When the summertime arrives, you almost have no chance to find a place on the main beaches of Nice, and perhaps on the whole Cote d'Azur: overcrowded with people, you must be lucky to find a square meter place to sit down...

    Funfair in Nice (France).

    In Nice the funfair takes place around Christmas, outdoor and indoor : here in the South of France, people don't like cold weather and don't want to stay outside a long time when the temperature in under 10°C.

    Port of Nice

    The port of Nice is one of my favorite place to shoot. It's a very inspiring place, not only because it's a wide open space in front of the sea, but also because there are always a lot of new big ships to see, prestigious old sailboats or impressing giant cruisers.

    Near the Nice airport is the Arenas business center, perhaps the most impressive area of the town concerning modern architecture.
