A photograph I took on film in 1992 from the very top of the grass covered clay cliffs in Deauville in the Calvados region of Normandy France, looking out over the sea on a late afternoon in May. Deauville is a luxurious seaside resort and it's easy to see why, it is just phenomenally breathtaking. Known as the "Flowery Coast" (Côte Fleurie), its accessibility from Paris and attraction as 'the' travel destination for the affluent has earned the coastal town the nickname of the "Parisian Riviera." I took this photograph over 30 years ago and I just uncovered it and processed it for the first time, and I do believe I have found the best photograph I have ever taken. I dunno, maybe I should've looked at it a little bit sooner. The only thing I remember about taking it is that my traveling companion was tightly holding onto the waistband on the back of my jeans. I don't think that would've saved us if I had gone over. While I once again ponder my poor life choices and excessive procrastination issues, please visit my Land and Sea Escapes art collections to see my other images of Deauville and Normandy.
