AVIZE and CHARTRES FRANCE – We started the morning in Jacques Pelosse’s cellars. The winemaker uses both oak and stainless steel fermentation vats depending on the grapes. Here are the oak versions – the owner is on the process of hanging an art show in the cellar.

We drove on toward our final destination (Brittany), making a stop at Chartre. Maria had seen the famous cathedral (started in 1150 or so) 30 years ago. I had seen it only in books. It’s a magnificent structure, light and airy, and at the same time massive. It wears its age – almost a thousand years – it’s constructed of limestone and a millennium of weather has softened the details on the thousands of sculptures on the exterior. We only had a couple of hours so I’m not able to do it justice. The image here is a six frame stitch of the Royal Portal.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – At last a lucid day on familiar turf. Still shooting infrared with my Sony a7ii – today without an R72 filter so the infrared effect is less extreme. These aren’t half bad. The third image is mostly out of focus, demonstrating the very good “bokeh” of this camera’s native 85mm Carl Zeiss lens.
