Doug Harman Photography in Provence

  Photography in Provence At last, the blog of my work in Provence earlier in the year has arrived, with some neat shots (I would say that though, wouldn’t I?) and a few top tips too. It’s not for nothing that artists have, for hundreds of years travelled to Provence, Southern France to pursue their art; the light is wonderful, the skies are clear (thanks largely to … Read More

Lavender and Sunflowers at Sundown

The Valensole Plains The Valensole Plains are France’s most important lavender-growing area, distilleries dot the limestone plain’s sunny landscape like small aircraft hangars, tall black chimneys smoking away as the fragrant oils are heated and pressured out of the cut flowers.

Blast from the (Digital Camera) Past

What’s the DiMage? I was sorting out a load of my old camera gear, packed up and stored in boxes in the garage (which was a mistake) I discovered my old but much-loved Minolta DiMage 7Hi digital camera.
