It’s been a while since I went to Lyon, but it is a really beautiful city. The countryside around it is spectacular too, in a completely different way. We were there around Christmas time a few years ago, and I took quite a few pictures of the snow covered landscape: A hidden castle lost in the fog, and a deserted frozen field. Of course we also went back in town to have some great food and wander around the old city and its traboules.


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.
