I met Manuel and Anne through Manuel's mom at our language school. In fact, Anne's mom works there too! They were so patient with me as I learned how to direct a photo shoot in French! Let's just say it was great practice the weekend before my big exam. And it must have payed off because I passed!
The place they chose is my favorite place in all of Albertville, France. I wish I could go there more often but not having a car makes for climbing up the mountain to the old medieval city quite a trek. We explored around the city, dodging in and out of old buildings and cathedrals, and managed to find some color even though winter has already started killing off all the green and orange. Regardless, France will always be a better place to take photos. :) C'est la vie!
