Welcome to my tiny gallery
There are so many things to see and discover in this world as well as in the virtual ones.
That is why I have been virtual-trotting all over what is called the grids (there is a very good explenation of what are the virtual worlds on Wikipedia, I will not explain more here)
I do not know if the word virtual-trotting exists but I am using it all the same ^^
I have been doing this for a few years now and what you see in this gallery is the result of my photographic hunting.

I also frequently go on foot in the town where I actually live. Mostly to take pictures of the old houses and buildings.
It is an old medieval town with very old architecture. Troyes is in France, in the region of Champagne, not very far from Paris - about 200kms.
It is a beautiful old town and it used to be the capital city of the counts of Champagne.

About these pictures I take in the virtual worlds I visit, if you ask me why I do take pictures of something that is not real, (rather than only take pictures of what I see around me) I will answer you for many reasons.
Because I find that many things are amazingly beautiful in these worlds. Because like three dimensionnal space and digital image, virtual worlds are fascinating and give you the possibility to create wonderful things.
And because you can take pictures of a lot of things, not only classical kind of pictures

I took every one of these pictures, real or not, for my own pleasure.
Photography is a passion for me. That is why I have no intention of selling anything.
So please feel free to take any of the pictures you want to make some wallpapers for your computers.
I am happy to share what I have here, in the gallery, with you.

There is something that you must know though, because everyone asks me. When I say everyone, it's the people around me in real life or on the virtual worlds where I have my galleries.
I do not and must insist on the not, use Photoshop or Gimp. I do not have the use of these tools. I use my computer "camera" the same way I would use one in real life. Well not exactly the same way as I do not hold it in my hands
What I meant is that I work the same way there, when I take my pictures, as I do in real life. You may not believe it, but these virtual worlds are more like real life than you think.
So I use light, perspective, depth of field and so on. Nothing more. No retouches, no enhancements of any kind.
Thank you for being here and thank you for browsing my gallery
