Welcome to my tiny gallery
As I do not have money enough to exhibit in a real gallery, this page has become one.
There are so many things to see and discover in this world as well as in the virtual ones that I have been virtual-trotting(I do not know if the word exists but I am using it all the same ^^) for a few years now. I also walk a lot in my hometown and I love taking pictures.
The town I live is an old medieval one that you can find in France. It is called Troyes and that you can find in the region of Champagne. This is why I often take pictures of it.

About these virtual worlds I visit, if you ask me why most of the time I take pictures of something that is not real rather than only take pictures of what I see around me, I will answer you that it's because I find that many things are amazingly beautiful in these worlds.
Some people have created their own small paradises there and enjoy very much decorating them the same way a painter would create a painting and then share these spaces with others.
They have spent hours working on something that others consider not being real but when you are there, it's wonderful to have a walk in these beautiful landscapes, villages and towns.
Some of the work of these people are worth taking a zillion photographies.

I took every one of these pictures 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 world 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 browsing my gallery
