First attempt at “shooting stars”, from Creux du Van, Switzerland. Suboptimal conditions with an almost full moon and a thin layer of clouds. But an opportunity to learn new techniques and fool around with Lightroom sliders.
The Elysée Photography museum will soon move to new premises, downtown, in the vicinity of Lausanne’s CFF station. I hope they will keep their old photobooth. Time for a true analog selfie.
Flying the DHC-1 Chipmunk over a beautiful winter scenery: Swiss Alps.
And I just realize that my work is available in the digital version of Plateform Magazine. What I wrote 6 years ago is still true: I want my photographs to be like the first 5 lines of a novel. That’s why I always put a character in them.
I regularly receive messages from Instagram users asking me if I can give or sell them my username (@remi). The answer is “no” for several reasons:
1/ Being named “remi” is not a sufficient reason. It’s also my first name and we are a few millions in this case.
2/ I was one of the very first users of Instagram, back in October 2010 (somewhere around the 1500th user). This allowed me to secure and use this perfect username. This is not your case, I know. Sorry.
Now, if you park a brand new Porsche 718S “Miami Blue” in front of my house and hand me the keys in exchange, I might hesitate.
Greetings to all the Remi of the world.
Beautiful winter light, to start the new year refreshed, in shape, in control.

Challenging light here but the new iPhone XR performs very well. It still managed to capture details in the shadows while not burning the bright sky.
See below for a before and after: the untouched picture and, once clicked, a version edited with Snapseed posted on Instagram (which might be slightly over-processed, I confess, but it shows the level of details preserved).
By the way, this is the beautiful AMPA Morane Saulnier MS317 (1937) based at Lausanne Airport, Switzerland.
Flying from Lausanne (VD) to Lommis (TG) with our Piper L-4 (1944) last weekend, exploring Switzerland from above.
Taking a break during the 2018 edition of a (shortened, due weather) “Tour de Suisse“: Flew there with WD347, DHC1 “Chipmunk”. Wonderful classic.
