Hey man, slow down.

It’s a challenge because you’re fighting the awkward way your mind incapsulates perception and memory and the over the top detail a camera can capture.

Slow down everyone and look around once in a while. 

I travel too much. Something stupid like 40 flights in the last year - quite a bit of security and cheap toasters for points. 

In images I try to recreate the feeling of actually standing in that position - the viewpoint, emotion and those mind frame.

It's a challenge because you're fighting the awkward way your mind incapsulates perception and memory and the over the top detail a camera can capture. 

However I think this is the first time a lens actually recreates the nuances in a landscape. The colour rendition, perspective and sharpness is perfect. It's not flashy, HDR or imposing distractions through fault - it just captures and represents reality. 

It won't win any awards and I'm sure someone will point out the relationship between bark and grass and complain about highlights. But it means something to me - and what else is a image meant to be? 

This is a view of a forest in a family home in the South of France. It's my peaceful place.
