France Wines, vines and Castles ie Chateau

France is even more amazing than I had imagined.  I was able to travel through most of the prominent wine regions and take classes at each location.  I also had the opportunity to work in Paris and Dijon.  The photos are of Bordeaux, Tours, Paris, Dijon, Beaune, Cote de Nuits, Lyon, Avignon and Marseille.

 

Most of these photographs were taken with my cheap pocket camera.  I was taking classes and tours, but still wanted to record the trip.  I used my professional equipment with the photo sessions with Jessica and Ophelie.
