Enjoy some photographs taken on Sunday the 1st of July, 2012 from the VIP steam boat Côte-d’Azur.
After a two-week break in Lorient, the fleet is on the way to Galway for Leg 9.
Despite of a tough start Camper managed to win Leg 9. Groupama sailing team arrived second in Galway which means… no matter how they will sail the last In-port Race in Ireland… they won the Volvo Ocean Race 2011-2012! Congratulations to the French Franck Cammas and his teammates!

More photographs of the Volvo Ocean Race: the end of Leg 8 and arrival in Lorient and the French Acrobatic Patrol over the Cité de la Voile Eric Tabarly.
A great family band helped me with the title of this post: thanks! But the title only. The content is, once again, related to the Volvo Ocean Race and its stop in Lorient, France.
The Alpha Jet of the Patrouille de France (French Acrobatic Patrol) performed an acrobatic demonstration to welcome the teams of the Volvo Ocean Race.

I have not been really committed to share photographs recently… I just discovered a challenge that will (hopefully) help me to upload photographs on a regular basis:
So from now on, one photograph every week (at least): ENJOY!
I did not share many photographs recently… but it does not mean that I do not play with my camera! It is just laziness which prevents me from sitting in front of a computer and updating this blog!
This morning roses in the garden were smiling to me, reminding me of The Little Prince written by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Keroman or the place where I discovered that Architecture is Art
Il y a quelques années de cela, le premier plan de bateaux colorait un paysage cubique, grisonnant et désolé: la base de sous-marins construite pendant la Deuxième Guerre mondiale. Une base indestructible! Seules les marées donnaient un peu de vie à l’endroit.
Récemment, la Cité de la Voile Eric Tabarly a transformé ce paysage. Dessinée en blocs et vagues, elle réconcilie le jeu fluide des marées océanes aux arrêtes dures des blocs de béton.
