In the Frame – Il de Ré

Taken back in September 2011 is Il de while on a bloggers trip in Poitou-Charentes, this images always catches my eye and makes me smile. For me, the stark contrast between the rinds of the cheese gives the photo the quality of a French watercolour. However, it is not the composition that make this one of my favourite pictures and thus my choice for in the frame, it is that looking at this image I am taken to France, to the market stall with the all the sights, sounds and smells.

    to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts
    prior to writing. I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just
    seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
    Thank you!
