'Catching the moment' is a way of life, like 'living in the moment', which has become important for me in recent years. Not easy to achieve, but always worth striving for. My photographs are just one example of how I try to do this. This blog is all about catching a moment in time, and sharing it with anyone who is interested.

One thought on “Honfleur Days”

  1. You have really caught how the French have such style. I loved the close up of the tins and the wire chair. The colours are all so crisp and clear. Just give me a cup of that lovely coffee. Well done.
