Photography has changed the way I see the world around me.

Through it I discover new things and rediscover old ones. Like my island, New Caledonia.

This blog is just me sharing my world through my photography.

Hope you enjoy.

LA MAISON CÉLIÈRES À L'ÉPOQUE MÉDIÉVALE

The Célières House In Medieval Times

The Sci-Fi Club in Noumea (New Caledonia) organised a medieval day in the Maison Du Livre (Book House). Also known as Maison Célières, named after the original owners of this beautiful colonial house. It's now on the heritage listing and owned by the Municipality. It was a beautiful, warm, winter day (no, that's not a typo). They had people in clothes from the era, food, dishes and cutlery from that time, spiced wines (an acquired taste). Weapons, armour and flags. You could also learn and participate in dances from back then too. They even had a corner for kids to create their own coat of arms. I went with a friend and her two daughters and the kids absolutely loved it.
