The past 2 months in France with instagram

posted in Life & travels   Thursday, 20 June 2013 from Alès / France listening Damien Rice
So, as you know if you read this, we are in a new home, back in France for 2 months, and it seems I look at it differently... Having the phone &  instagram always near my hand, make me want to shoot on a day to day basis to report all what I do, see, feel... So, here comes a visual sum up of the great moments of the past 2 months. What I love the most in France is his history, is graphic history. There are vintage type everywhere if you watch it !
 
There are 2 vintage suitcases labels found on an old box found in my grand mother attic :

I also drove a lot ! Went to Uzès, Marseille, Montpellier, Nîmes...

I also went to Clermont-Ferrand to met friends and clients, or to be precise friends which are clients... mediafix where I was art director, and the www.unairdevoyage.com shop for which I am working on a redesign.

I also had the chance to met Piers Faccini, and see him live in an amazing old church from the 12th century.

We spend a lot of nights at our friends guest house "Les Sardines aux yeux bleus" and it is also one of the project I am working on now.

And we have a new member in our family ! A horse, well a big poney called Nounours !!! It is the dark one, but I love this picture of the white horse done at the place where Nounous stays (it is to big to have a room in our new house).

All that to say I am happy to be back. First month was not easy, but now I know, we know we took the good decision and a lot of things will hapen ! I am working on a lot of new projects and one of the them is the 2014 letterpress calendar ! I share all this with you to tell you, if you need to remind, that "life is beautfull" !
