Over the past three years, I’ve visited Sens about eight times.  Most of my trips were in winter, which meant it was dark when I left the office in the evening. Other towns have had a better share of my photography time, and I want to change this over my next few visits.

Not the easiest shots I’ve taken recently… especially when wearing a suit! I took these early this morning outside my hotel before heading to our France office in Sens.  It was -3°c and it continued to snow the rest of the day.

Staying in a ‘flying theme;… the battery charger for my camera is no longer working. I just travelled to Qatar (and back) and had to leave my camera at home.  I will get a replacement as soon as possible.  In the meantime, enjoy some of the shots taken on my return flight from Paris.

In fact there wasn’t a single cloud in sight.  I just couldn’t think of a better title to describe the feeling of my experience yesterday. Imagine suddenly growing wings… then imagine something grabbing you, rocketing you a thousand metres up and… letting you go.  It was exhilarating!

This is the first personal few minutes I’ve had since my arrival!  I took a taxi out of Paris, first thing Wednesday, and I’ve been busy ever since…  My journey out of Paris airport reminded me what an active airport CDG really is.  The number of long white clouds (from the jet engines) that lined the sky was impressive. After our meetings, there are receptions, followed by dinners, followed by late nights with colleagues, followed by more meetings the next day.  It will be a tough year and many companies are struggling.  We are no exception, so it’s important to agree on strategies.

I’ve been visiting Sens every second month since this time last year.  My company’s head office and manufacturing plant are based here.  This small pretty town 1½ hours south (south eastish) of Paris is home to approximately 40000 people.  I don’t usually get a chance to walk around with my camera – and this trip is no exception.  The day is spent at the office, lunch with colleagues and dinner is usually with visitors. 

The above photograph was taken the day I arrived, when I had some free time after the drive from the airport.  This wonderful promenade encircles the whole city.  The end of this beautiful row of trees is the river Yonne.
