20 !

There we go. 20 inconnus are now in my gallery meaning that 1/5 of my project is completed (see them all in the gallery!). Should I have a speech? I dont’t think so, let’s wait for the end. But why not make it a bit special by sharing a photo of someone special?
You might think that this woman is posing (and she is), but I actually saw her before she saw me smelling and playing with those city flowers. That encouraged me to ask her to do that again for me. She was surprised but gladly accepted to play the game. She really enjoyed these tiny parts of nature in the middle of Paris, it was nice. After a few minutes chat, I learnt that she is an oriental dancer and then she invited me to come for one of her sessions. Wish I had time to do more hobbies!

After a short break

After a short break, here I am with some new Inconnus. No, it’s not that I stopped completely with this challenging project, I was simply swamped with work and business trips (such a pleasure to leave for a meeting on Saturday!). And after more than 5 weeks I finally had a calm weekend in Paris.
The woman below was such a nice encounter. This mother of two children who she was visiting in Paris seemed to be somehow… reserved at first sight. So I prepared me to a refusal. But when I asked the question “would you mind if I take a picture?”, her face just lit up and her amazing smile appeared, ready to be taken in portrait (I just love the space between teeth!!). Thank you, thank you …
