Gaze

 

Whenever I gaze up at the moon, I feel like I’m on a time machine. I am back to that precious pinpoint of time, standing on the foreboding – yet beautiful – Sea of Tranquility. I could see our shining blue planet Earth poised in the darkness of space.

Linux & friends to the garbage…

I tried very hard… Seriously. Yet I use to love those software when I started photography, but when you learn to use Adobe, you can’t get back to those software. They’re just destroying my pictures. I bought a software from Steam called Pixeluvo and… Well it’s a good software but there is no real RAW support. When I try to bring details out… Like I just said I feel like destroying the whole picture.

So I am back on Windows 10 and Adobe CC.

Escape in whatever you can, but escape!

Les Écrianchées de Septembre

Du Passé vers le Présent

Cette image a été prise à partir du Château Frontenac. On peut voir au Nord les vieilles Laurentides qui ont presque fini de s’effondrer. À gauche, mon vieux camarade de photographie, L’Édifice Price. J’aimerais tellement trouver un moyen d’entrer dans cet édifice pour photographier le vieux Québec…

Cette photo fut éditée avec GIMP. Plus j’avance dans mon apprentissage de la suite pour photographe Adobe, plus j’ai l’impression que je vais garder Lightroom mais pas Photoshop. Je ne sais pas si c’est une question d’habitude mais j’arrive à faire beaucoup plus ce que je veux avec GIMP. Le seul problème, si s’en est un, c’est qu’il ne gère pas le 16 bits. Mais à partir du moment où Lightroom le gère et que c’est au moment de l’édition en RAW que j’ai besoin de cette profondeur et bien, je n’ai plus vraiment besoin de Photoshop.

Dans quelques mois, la mise à jour 2.9 de GIMP apportera le support du 16 bits.

250 Km

There is exactly 250 Km between Quebec city and the metropolis. That means 2,5 hours on car… this is enough to take few shot and test some abstract photography.

My Son

My Son is an expert. He really is. He’s an expert on finding things to capture. Here is our last catch. A stone that also can cut things.

Seriously, this is amazing how much my kid can learn only by walking at the shore. There is so many things nature drop by and that become reflection to him and, on top of this, it looks like he feels free at this place.

There is no walls, no limits…

These Boots Are Made for Walkin’

_MG_3742_2014_09_mono

You keep saying you got something for me
Something you call love but confess
You’ve been a’messin’ where you shouldn’t ‘ve been a’messin’
And now someone else is getting all your best
Well, these boots are made for walking, and that’s just what they’ll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you…

Nancy Sinatra
