It took me less than a month to reach Portugal by the east Portuguese border. Program, of course cycling but also learning Spanish the main goal of this trip, meeting faces and discovering more and more. I am now in Porto. Here is a short resume in picture.
This week was a three day celebration called Magha Puja: One of the most important holy days in Buddhism. The spiritual aims of the day are: not to commit any kind of sins (and of course, I am drinking a beer while I am editing those pictures); do only good and purify one’s mind. I made a stop in some temples to capture the event.

So, I am back in Thailand, I missed green tea aka “Cha Khiaow” too much.
My first job was for IEL. An event company ran by an independent guy organizing english camps for schools. Thai kids didn’t change since I left: Lot of smile and happiness. I definitely love this country.
I mostly took video and will wait for him to edit/upload to spread the world.

I am back in France and I am cold. A few weeks before I left Liberia, my camera was stolen and my computer passed away. A good way for destiny to tell me to go out from this country. I will miss you LIB but I will definitely come back.
I had an assignment to picture a wedding. Since I had no camera, I had to borrow one. It’s a Panasonic GH4 with a 12-35mm lens. I already used this camera for video purpose, it create wonderful slow motion. But it’s my first time I am used it for photography.
I really appreciate the silent mode, absolutely no noise when activated and I didn’t feel any difference about perfs, absolutely perfect for discretion. The big problem of this camera is the numeric noise appearing when you are in low light condition. 1600ISO start to be very bad, but still better than nothing right?
Sun is there, people are outside enjoying mama Liberia Beaches. People doing acrobatics, and playing football/rugby since we brought a ball. Funny thing is that even if people do not really know the rules, they are acting perfectly.
Sometime during a nice Sunday, when the weather is appropriate, you tie your shoes and grab your camera exploring this fascinating world that the West Point slum is, full of life and colors.
