Remember Flo?

Do you remember Flo from my trip to Toulouse? Well I promised a follow up post of Florian and his friends that I shot back in May, but hadn’t got around to doing as other things came along. Sorry Guys! So let’s get on with it. The guy in...

May Day in Toulouse (Part 2)

Welcome to part 2 of the May Day March on a wet day in Toulouse. These two guys stopped right in front of me, and seemed to have given up on keeping dry. Once again I got in amongst the demonstrators to get this shot, so I could shoot...

May Day in Toulouse (Part 1)

This post should have been done a long time ago, on my return from Toulouse. I have so many images from the day and I did make other posts of our time in Toulouse, but due to not feeling 100% it had become a task and I wasn’t on...

Along the Garrone

Wandering aimlessly through the streets I turned out of one street and saw this avenue of trees. I couldn’t see over the wall so walked over and saw the wide expanse of the River Garonne. I saw the couple above looking out across the river. The tree lined street...

A Wander in Toulouse

I cannot emphasise enough what a beautiful city Toulouse is. As I’ve said before you can get everywhere by foot as it is so flat, and the streets are so narrow that the only public transport is the “Navette Ville”. A shuttle bus that travels through and around the...

French Parking

I was leaning out of the window of our 2nd floor hotel room in Toulouse, just watching the world go by, when this mini pulled up on the road below. He started to reverse backwards into this parking space. I could see there was no way he was going...

Beautiful Colours of The Capitole

I love working with Black & White, but also with Colour. I don’t feel the need like some people that Street always has to be in black & white. I can’t tell you when it is best, as that a personal thing. It is more just a feeling, and...

At The Capitole (Part 2)

The thing I like about shooting street, as well as getting the shots, is taking the time to observe people. Although you see different clothes styles, and especially hair styles, a lot of behaviour is the same as the UK. Wherever you go in the modern world people have...

At The Capitole (Part 1)

On telling some people I was going to Toulouse, they asked “What are you going there for?” and “What’s in Toulouse?” Well, it is a beautiful City, with so much going on, and you can get almost everywhere on foot. I hope after reading the following posts they will...

Flo the Hypnotist

I first saw Florian on Rue Roschach, which is next to the Donjon du Capitole in the centre of Toulouse, France. He was encouraging people to become subjects for himself and his friends, for Florian is a Hypnotist. He was with a group of other Hypnotists and they were...

The Toulousian Ice Cream

I’ve recently returned from a trip to Toulouse in Southern France. Unlike the UK there were some beautiful sunny days. Whilst sitting in Place du Capitole I noticed this woman sitting with an ice cream. She was holding it in front of her as if contemplating the taste and...
