August, the 25th. A special day for me. Sylvain, a friend of mine, asked if I want to go camp with him at the Lac de Peyre near le Grand Bornand. I needed to release the pressure of my new job and escape from routine. I told him a while ago I want to enjoy more the beautiful landscapes we have here. I do mostly landscapes photography but don’t go out enough to enjoy it and it’s a shame.

30 minutes car ride, 1h30 minutes hiking and we were all by ourself with this tiny lake and an amazing view of the Mont Blanc. After setting up the tent, we started shooting some pictures, but the best moment was when we woke up before sunrise and got this beautiful light combined with the gorgeous scenery in front of us. We were surrounded by sheeps, there was this perfect reflections on the lake, I could have spent hours shooting but within 30 minutes the best light was gone. But not the memories of these special moments.

After more than year of silence for various reasons, I’m writing a post on this blog. I’m ready to share again some of the pictures I shot in the previous months. In November I went to Hong-Kong, my first vacations alone, and when I went through my pictures of Hong-Kong I realized I managed to shoot quite a lot of picture with only one person in the frame. When you know that Hong-Kong has the one of the highest density of population in the world, I find this quite odd but the pictures resume perfectly my vacations : alone, but still, surrounded by millions.

This place is just unbelievable and had a great time walking in the busy streets with my Leica around my neck trying to capture the unique atmosphere of this city/country. After visiting Japan I’m definitely so in love with Asia. Within a few minutes of walking you can go from the super crowded and oppressing modern neighborhoods, to quiet and traditional areas.

Usually when you need to take public transportation you think about subway, tramway or busses. In Oslo it’s a little bit different as boats are part of the public transportation network. For the price of a bus ticket you can make a small cruise in the Oslo bay in a boat that goes from island to island (this is one of the few cheap things to do in Oslo).

As usual, the light was really beautiful and the contrast between the colorful houses, the deep blue sea, the low sun and the sky allows to shoot some cool pictures.
