Cannes Film Festival

Like every year around May we descended upon the south of France for the Berenger’s annual gathering. I guess this is our own equivalent of Thanksgiving, with the three “F” (Family, Food and Festivities) all well represented. This year though, Christine had a surprise up her sleeve, and we ended up going to the Cannes Film Festival, for the evening red carpet showing of Mike Leigh’s Another Year.

It was a fantastic evening, great fun, and the movie was quite good too!

Green River

Two years ago, a weekend in Chicago. It was Saint Patrick’s day, we wandered around the city, along the banks of the river turned green for the occasion. We had a lovely day, drank some beer, watched some college basketball, went for dinner. I asked her to marry me and she said yes.


An old picture taken by dad that I scanned, and one of my favourite portraits of her… I don’t exactly know why, but it’s a great shot.
