Last weekend, the airshow celebrating the Battle of Britain took place in Duxford. Long before the crews started the engines of their Messerschmitt, Hurricane, Lysander and other wonderful, 80 years-old flying machines, the show started on the ground, for those who had access to the flight line. A crowd of volunteers participated in giving a unique, 1940 atmosphere.

It’s a country far from here. More than an island, it’s another planet. How could one not fall in love with these magnetic landscapes, so beautiful and reminiscent of the first hours of the Earth? I have started to upload more of these shots at 500px but here’s a sneak peak:

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.
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.
