Chevrolet Blanc et Noir

Chevrolet Blanc et Noir The Chevrolet Blanc et Noir is a toy car made by the French firm Vilac. When I first saw a photo of the car some years back I was struck by its bold shape, slick lines and art deco styling.  So it was a great joy to recreate the model and bring it into a digital world.

Victorian Christmas Living Room – Ambient background video

The Journey: The snow gently drifted down outside and the cold air was kept at bay by the soothing embers burning in the fireplace.

Castle ruins by a Lake | Ambient and medieval music background video

The ruins of this once-majestic castle rest on the shoreline of this sacred loch. Its creation lays in mystery and the clan that built it was known for their kinship towards each other.

Roaming free in the wilds, anywhere on the land is my resting place, but for tonight perhaps these fellow campers will not mind some company. So I
