Photography and our love of the sea brought us together…..and those things, and our zest for life have encouraged us to dive into this project with one another! Much like “Thelma and Louise,” we are on this adventure together no matter where it leads us! Our hope is to share with each other, and our readers, our photography, our lives, and our love of all things ocean and beautiful whether that be in Maine, in Brittany, France or anywhere else our travels lead us!
I am Louise, from Brittany, France… Born in Mauritius, island of the Indian Ocean. Both sides of my parents’ families were from France, they were there at the time the island was known as “Isle de France”.
I had a wonderful youth, great and loving memories are forever in my heart and mind. May be they are the ones which are helping me, now, to go further.
Due to my Dad’s profession (world renown entomologist), since my young age, I had the opportunity to travel quite a lot, not only around several islands of the Indian Ocean : Madagascar, Reunion, Rodriguez, Seychelles, also several countries of East, West and South Africa : Tanzania, Kenya, Egypt, Las Palmas, Saint Helena, many European countries, specially England for pleasure and my studies.
Staying in the world of travelling, my job too allowed interesting visits namely to the USA and Europe and, moreover, I worked in the aerospace field.
Travelling opens new horizons and eager interests in the people one meets, sees, passes by. I thought since my young age that photography was, and is still, an excellent way to keep in touch humanly. I started with a Kodak “Starlet’ camera… Then, I had several others and nowadays they are both digital.
Photography is my best friend ! My cameras are always there when I need them, they are of a wonderful company…
I now live in Brittany, France, close to the sea. In fact the far Westerly part of Europe with on the other side of the ocean, America… Canada…
In fact, I started my life near the sea and now the sea is part of my day-to-day life…
Hello, I’m Nanette from Maine! I see life more clearly and more beautifully through the lens. When I am photographing, time slips by and I forget that I am hungry or cold. We are here in this wondrous place. I hope to enjoy every minute of it, and leave something behind that represents a life well-lived.
