I’ve been going back and forward about whether or not to write this post. I wanted to say something about the recent horrific events in Paris and yet, I didn’t want it to feel like I was making it about me. But, as Stephen Colbert pointed out on the Late Show, it’s ok to try and find a connection with the city, to show solidarity in whatever form you can. So this is my tribute to Paris. It is what it it. It’s only tenuously about photography, but it’s a subject that I hold dear, as it’s a city I hold dear.

Nice, France by iPhone

I recently took some time off to have a well deserved holiday in the beautiful seaside city of Nice in the south of France. Normally when I travel I take an assortment of cameras, with the main one usually being my D700 with 28-300 lens. However, as the primary purpose of this trip was to relax and unwind, I wanted to travel light and, to be honest, I had considered not taking any cameras and just enjoying the sunshine. Of course, the photographer inside me wouldn't let that happen! I decided to bring my X-E1 and an old Film camera, but I ended up taking most of my pictures with my iPhone.
