• Am I a photographer ?

I was given my first camera before ten, which wasn’t so usual at the time. What I liked was to take pictures with the flash, as you could observe the bulbs burning. Though, I had been told this was very expensive. So I was taking one picture a year or so. Then I got a Konica Pop, and my visual experiences started to expend. Finally, in 2003, I had a photographer partner who teached me how to use a camera for real.

I learned how to wait, how to observe, always with a frame in mind (rather than a light).

In cars, trucks, buses, whatever, what I like are their mirrors.

• Can I cope with climate change ?4x4 - Banner 1I can sing under the rain (Cochi),  the monsoon (Delhi), or a storm (Arkanghaï)…

… I can even smile after a never ending walk (12 days) or under a burning sun (Egypt, August)….

… On the other hand, wind makes me freak out (sore throats always wait for me), cold makes me turn into a freaky puppet (Artic Circle in February for instance), and bad nights make me grumpy.

• What is my real weakness ?
Feet - Banner 1
It looks like my feet are born for first class flights only (middle picture). When I walk 12 hours in NYC or 12 days in the steppes, even plasters are not enough…

… That’s why I visit caves with army boots and beaches with very handsome neoprene shoes… I have a feeling I’m gonna crawl during those eleven months…

• And What about some MacGyverism ?

Sometimes maps make me very puzzled (India on the left), sometimes they don’t (Istambul bazar on the right) but usually I try to rely on other people… Let’s see…

In any case, my headlamp always helps me getting out of trouble (fixing a hook for instance)…

I’ll keep you posted 🙂
