arriving at our second sweet home in la chataigneraie, vendée the day before, off we went to fontenay-le-compte to grab more clothes for the children from a favourite french brand sergeant major. but it was monday. we knew everything was most likely shut on mondays but tried anyway – shouldn’t waste a hot summer’s day!
driving back home, i spotted this field in pissotte. it had started drizzling, but i had learned one rule about photography: not to wait for a second chance when you spot a scene – you might never get it!
so here we are: damp-haired in summer’s denim-on-denim in a beautiful sunflower field in vendée, where some big part of my heart is still heavily left for several reasons.
