It is hard to fathom that this elegant city’s origins lie in that of a fishing port, and the tale of our home’s development is rich and …

The Morgan Chronicles : First Voyage

Nick Casson, owner of Riviera Classic Car Hire, insisted I should take out my new purchase, a truly classic & iconic Morgan, for a trip before the weather turned for the worse. I had bought the car from Nick while shooting a promotional video for him, he knew that particular vehicle was an all-time favourite of mine & he proposed a scheme whereby I got exclusive ownership & use, but it remains in his garage of rentals in Golfe Juan – so we can both get some cash to cover the running costs. I decided to pop across to the …

Photography in Focus – James Robinson Taylor

I first came to Cannes in 1996; I was looking for a good gathering of classic yachts and my colleague and mentor Bert Richner suggested I give it a go. It was still the analogue era and I worked out of my van, bunk and laboratory. Once gaining my yearly go-ahead from Mr. Oderò, I’d bring my van in with the other photographers; we were a great gathering and the Regates Royales proved an excellent venue for our work. We were hard core photographers, developing our own film in our vans. I could process about twelve to sixteen rolls a …

Our Holiday

A short travel blog by Mark Walters from the UK: We travelled from Sussex, UK to Nice via Gatwick. We stayed in one of Hotel Le Florian’s apartments on Rue du Commandant André. We have stayed in Cannes several times before, but the Hotel Le Florian was an excellent choice. The continental breakfast was more than we could eat (and we did try), the apartment was clean and spacious, with the location being excellent. We visited many places during our 8 day stay. St Tropez, Grasse and the Villa Domergue. Villa Domergue was well worth the Bus ride and the …
