For the last 12 months, or so, my posts have appeared with ever diminishing regularity. I think this is because…..let me be more precise: the reason for this paucity of words is because, above all, I am a visual person and, as such, I have been successfully seduced by Instagram which has given me the freedom to publish my photographs and drawings without the addition of a small essay. Much as I enjoy writing there is no question that I am at my most content when creating pictures and, if possible, cooking at the same time.
From henceforth you will find a link to my Instagram feed by clicking on any of the 4 pictures displayed in the Instagram widget at the bottom of the right hand column of this page. I hope to see you on Instagram as well as here in WordPress.
I’m running a photography and instagram workshop in the heart of the French countryside in October. The location is the Mervent Forest in the Sud Vendée with easy access from La Rochelle Airport or via train to Niort or La Rochelle. Contact me on email@example.com and I’ll give you all the details. ….prices start from as low as £599….or go straight to the site where you will find all the prices and description of accomodation plus a Booking button..https://www.biginfrance.com/roger
My Instagram account has been hacked, which means that I have lost control of how the hackers may use my food pictures ( like the one above) and, worst of all, pictures of my family and grandchildren. I’d be grateful if any of my blog followers who may follow my Instagram account ( Roger Stowell) could put a comment on my most recent Instagram post saying that “This account has been hacked and Roger is no longer in control of the content”. I’m making this request as Instagram/Facebook have absolutely no interest in taking any steps to prevent hackers or in helping those who have been hacked.
Hopefully I’ll get going on some more food posts once I can get away from the sunny garden:)

My photography isn’t limited to food and cooking as previous posts might suggest. Much as I enjoy anything to do with good food and creating it, my real love is for image making and writing about it. This October I shall be running a photography workshop in the corner of France in which I have lived for the last 20 years. The aim of the workshop is to share my enthusiasm for digital photography, to debunk a few myths and to stimulate people to advance a few steps deeper into the pleasures of the digital darkroom…….and to have a few ideas for you instagrams, of course.
The picture above is the cover of my new book*…..by clicking on this link http://www.blurb.com/books/8836465-france-2014-18 you can have a complete preview of the book which may give you some idea of the path along which I would hope to lead you.
Details of the dates, price, location of the workshop can be found on the following link which includes booking forms: https://www.biginfrance.com/roger
- The price of the book is set by Blurb.com and is beyond my control and does not reflect my profit which is 10€.
