Vauville Fort was built around 1760, during the Seven Years War (1756-1763) when Vauban started to protect the Channel coasts against a possible invasion of British troops.

 

After some studies, Ricard was chosen to realize a line of coast defenses from Mont Saint Michel to Cherbourg (West coast) and from Cherbourg to Carentan (East coast).

 

There were two different works in the defense line:

 

Small forts put along the coasts which could communicate between them through light signals.

 

Bigger forts in small number along the coasts. The headquarters, supplies, back up troops, and a chapel could be found inside these forts.

 

Close to the shore, small forts were always the same: The house was 10 m long and 6m large. It had rubble stone walls made with lime.

 

They could be 1m20 thick. The house was divided in three rooms: the supply and powder room, the captain’s room and the men’s room.

 

In the last room, there was a chimney. The house always had a surrounding wall from which a light standard cannon could fire.

 

6 men could live inside the house. There are almost on small forts left. Most of them were deserted then sold by the owners of the estates. Most of them were used as stone quarries.

 

Vauville Fort is now registered as a Historical Monument. It has always been preserved and it is now fully restored.

 

It is one of the last line of defense of the Cotentin from the 18th Century.

A fine mist envelops a quiet lane in Point Reyes, near San Francisco. Sometimes, fog really enhances a scene. No HDR.

Story:

---------------------------------------------------------

Last week, I went out for a sunset shot at the beach here in Marin County, just north of San Francisco. This is the dry season, but there were some rare clouds and (even more rare) rain in the area and as sunset approached, it began to clear up. I was all ready for what I had planned when a bank of fog moved in and that was that. I had to go to my backup plan. (Always have a backup plan since nature does not often cooperate despite how carefully you study her!) I knew about this row of trees on the way to the Point Reyes Lighthouse so I headed over there. I have been waiting for about 3 years for a misty foggy sort of day where I could capture this scene with some extra depth and light that you don't see without fog. So here it is! ... If you try this, walk the entire length of the path looking for the best composition. It took about 15 minutes of fiddling around to settle on this composition. This was halfway down.

 

Here is some history on this radio installation:

The map shows exactly where this is.

Simply the best way to scout out locations that there is. You can see sun angles and pre-visualize light under lots of different conditions. Sometimes you can actually pre-compose your shots! This has saved me many thousands of vertical feet of climbing by avoiding spots with blocked views etc.

... en voici une adressée à mon ami-flickerien Alain BEAUVOIS, que j'ai eu l'immense chance de croiser lors d'une expo qu'il tenait à Oye-Plage il y a deux ans: www.flickr.com/photos/alainbeauvois62/sets/72157633392718... .

C'est beau, non ? Très très beau, c'est indéniable ! "Pourquoi retoucher la nature ? N'est-elle pas belle telle quelle ?" Son message m'avait marqué. C'est vrai, faire passer une émotion, sans le moindre trucage, c'est le top du top...

C'est donc avec un immense plaisir sans doute que ce photographe qui prône la non-retouche comme valeur ultime et universelle de talent et voue les logiciels aux gémonies, savourera ce cliché ci-dessus, où le post-traitement est exceptionnellement resté au vestiaires (sauf pour les bordures et encadrements... on ne se refait pas, faut pas déconner non plus...)

Ce monsieur "rayonnant" ( www.flickr.com/photos/alainbeauvois62/16001102023/in/phot... ), qui jubile visiblement à se mettre en scène, n'est pas simplement le prototype du puriste auto-déclaré méprisant toutes les pratiques et techniques modernes qui ont élargies le spectre du domaine photographique d'une façon aussi riche et hallucinante et qui rendent notre passion sans limite (montages numériques, collages, HDR, textures, expositions longues, peintures digitales... et que sais-je encore...). C'est aussi un non-partageur, un bourreau de l'interactivité: mes petits commentaires naïfs de photographe amateur débutant et ébloui postés il y a deux ans ont été effacés. Bon. Et le bloquage est désormais fermement activé. Ah, ça se confirme. J'avais déjà été fortement déçu par le fait que ma visite n'ait pas suscité en retour une petite visite dans l'autre sens... un petit merci, un petit mot pour un petit cliché de l'élève qui méritait peut-être un petit louange du Maître...

Son credo de la photo pure, sans retouche, sans OGM, sans matière grasse et sans conservateur, ces bonnes valeurs conformistes louées aussi fièrement, ne sont plus désormais pour moi, le fan déçu, qu'un confort intellectuel que ce ch'ti s'est harmonieusement octroyé. Pour ne pas devoir faire face à un monde de technologies et de bidouillages supplémentaires qui lui sont inconnus. Et pour surfer tout en haut de son estime de soi.

 

Pour les photographes de ch'Nord/Pas-de-Calais qui valent photographiquement mais aussi humainement le coup, je vote à l'unanimité, et y'a pas d'ordre de préférence:

 

Sébastien CARBONNIER: www.flickr.com/photos/carbonnier-photographie/sets/721576... (un album royal de portraits d'enfants)
