The Fort National, in the walled city port of St Malo

St-Malo by day…

I was obviously in the mood to shoot panoramic images on this day (as well as the subject matter lending itself to the format of course), as 4 out of the 6 images below are pano’s… I have always loved shooting and stitching images together to provide a field of view that would simply not be possible with a single lens or image. I enjoy the detail that such images yield, particularly if you are lucky enough to be able to see the final work printed big! The largest image I have been commissioned to produce to date, and that has then been subsequently printed on glass is 4 metres  x 30 metres. The fun comes from picking out individuals or groups of people going about their business…I find myself thinking such thoughts as ‘I wonder who you are, where you come from, what your dreams are…’

St Malo is beautiful at night, and certainly does not disappoint during the day. I am glad that we stayed in a hotel outside of the old walled city, since the narrow streets would not have been fun to negotiate by car…
