Last Sunday, I shot with Lea. It was not the first time we were shooting together, but this time she welcomed me in her very home in order to make a try for new « in situ » project.

Sur ce groupe, un trublion qui signe sous le nom de Elsephir Libre m'a gentiment autorisé à réproduire ici un post qui rejoint à tel point ma façon de voir les choses en ce moment, que je n'ai plus qu'a me la fermer et à vous lacher le pavé.
