There is talk of the French Maginot Line, a chain of bunkers, which runs from the North Sea coast along the eastern border of France to the Mediterranean.

All details on the different bunker types, the technology and weaponry and stories you find on the blog. The photos are available for limited art prints.

Soigner vos Animaux au naturel en Home made L’ aromathérapie Si certaines huiles essentielles peuvent être dangereuses pour l’être humain et principalement celles contenant des phénols comme le thym (thymol), la Sarriette (carvacrol), la girofle (eugenol) et des cétones qui sont neurotoxiques, elles sont encore plus dangereuses pour les chats et les chiens. Il existe 3 raisons principales: La peau du chat est très fine comme celle des bébés, les huiles essentielles pénètrent donc très vite dans le sang. Les huiles essentielles sont en général interdites aux enfants et principalement aux bébés.La quantité d’huiles essentielles que l’on peut absorber, est comme tous produits, proportionnelle à la taille de la personne, quand on indique 3 à 4 gouttes d’huiles essentielles pour un individu qui fait 70kg, il faut ramener cette quantité à 1/10 de gouttes pour un chat, ce qui n’est pas facile à doser! Cependant rien ne serait etre plus nocif que les produis beeuurrrkkkk du commerce pour vos animaux. Recettes naturelles Ecorchures et plaies

Jim Brandenburg | Professional Insights | Nikon Professional Services My name is Jim Brandenburg and I am an American nature photographer. Most of my career has been with National Geographic Magazine and in television. Today I am on the west coast of France testing the Nikon D800, a very exciting new product. I am honored to be able to be one of the first to use this camera. When I was young, I was very shy, I didn't speak much, so I developed a visual language early on to express myself. The camera was quite a nice tool for this: I would go off and make pictures of animals and then come back to show my family. This past month, I opened a retrospective of my work in Europe. Sometimes, I can't even think of it as a career when I look back at my five decades as a photographer.

Abandoned House in the Woods Taken Over by Wild Animals Finnish photographer Kai Fagerström presents unique photo series, where he captures wild animals making themselves comfortable in abandoned houses in the woods of Finland. Titled The House in the Woods, the photo series is set in cottages near Kai’s summer house, which were abandoned by their tenants after the owner of the place died in a fire. Award-winning photographer noticed how the place was slowly being reclaimed by the nature, and what started as a few snapshots, ended up being a book, published in Finnish, German, and English. “Deserted buildings are so full of contradictions,” says Kai. “I am fascinated by the way nature reclaims spaces that were, essentially, only ever on loan to humans.” Kai usually works with a clear image of what he wants to achieve in his head, although it make take some time for all elements to fall into place.

Seriously, I never knew cows could be so happy. This might make you think twice about eating beef. Seriously, I never knew cows could be so happy. This might make you think twice about eating beef. I was completely shocked when I saw how these cows reacted to being freed. It really makes me think twice about eating animals. They're smart animals and have feelings.

Sayaka Ikemoto | Professional Insights | Nikon Professional Services Digital and film photography can be radically different from one another, and not just from an operational standpoint. Each medium instills a different feeling when shooting, and both require a different approach to subject matter. It is true that recent D-SLRs can improve your chances of capturing the right moment dramatically. Moreover, the post-production process with digital allows for more freedom than with film, and you can shoot more frames with less consideration about how much film is left or when might be the right moment to use your last frame. However, there is something special and visceral that I feel when I concentrate on a single shutter release for a single photo with film. This practice of using film also affects how I select a picture, which I also consider a great advantage in this digital era. The images made from film are not "perfect" in the ways digital images can be, and I consider this another advantage.

Real Monstrosities I Keep a Writer's Notebook alongside my Students. Do you? I began requiring journal writing way back in 1990--my first year of teaching. I had taken a methods class at my university that stressed the importance of having students keep journals to record daily responses to topics. I said, "Why not?" In the spring of 1998, thanks to my high school journalism students' hard work, I was awarded with a month-long, summer fellowship from C-SPAN in Washington, D.C., and the first thing the wonderful folks at C-SPAN asked me to do upon arrival was to keep a daily journal that documented my experience there. When I returned to my classroom in August of 1998, I showed and shared entries from my summer journal every day during that first month of school. Over the next dozen years that followed that trip to D.C., I slowly improved my ability to inspire my students with the daily writing expectations. The overwhelming majority of my students now respect their writer's notebooks enough to hold on to them tightly. I have to be doing something right.

Urbex – Le monde souterrain des égouts de Montréal Urbex – Le monde souterrain des égouts de Montréal Le photographe canadien Andrew Emond, passionné d’urbex, nous entraine dans le monde souterrain des égouts de Montréal. Une facette méconnue de la ville québécoise, passant de la brique au béton au fil des époques et des déambulations de son réseau, dont les premières constructions remontent aux années 1800… Images © Andrew Emond / via J'ai recueilli un mammifère que faire ? J'ai recueilli un mammifère (écureuil, hérisson, genet ...) : que faire ? Quelle que soit l'espèce, lorsque vous récupérez un mammifère jeune ou adulte, blessé ou non, soyez très vigilants et ne négligez pas le risque de blessures (morsures, griffures, coups de sabot, etc.) et de maladies (échinococcose, leptospirose, rage). Portez obligatoirement des gants ! S'il s'agit d'un carnivore (renard, blaireau, belette, fouine, etc.) faites particulièrement attention aux morsures et aux griffures. Ne tenez jamais les Gliridés (loirs, lérots et muscardins) par la queue qui est fragile et qui se détacherait et méfiez-vous également des morsures. Pour les chauves-souris, faites attention aux dents (ce qui ne devrait pas poser de soucis puisque vous portez des gants !) Certains centres de sauvegarde sont habilités pour accueillir les mammifères. Pour plus d'informations : Office National de la Chasse et de la Faune Sauvage – ONCFS Détails
