On our recent trip to France, we visited Monet’s house and gardens in Giverny. There were lots of tourists here – some visible on the far footbridge in this first image.

Despite the crowds, it was fun to walk around and imagine Monet here, deciding on the viewpoint for his next painting. I tried to push the other tourists out of my consciousness and go back in time. Monet happened to see the village of Giverny while passing by in a train. He lived there from 1883 until his death in 1923.

Working both in the studio and on location, photographer Blake Robinson serves the Connecticut communities of Darien, New Canaan, Stamford, Norwalk, Westport and Greenwich.

    Blake, these are just beautiful. Worthy of frames and a wall to
    hang them on.
    Glad you are back safely and had fun
