Photographer's Note

Abstraction on the sand (in the workshop you can see the full view).

Another moment
Taken from my walk
On the orange sunset sand
Around the oasis of Chinguetti
On a late afternoon…

-.-

I want to share an anecdote brought back by Saint Exupery:
One day when he was in the desert,
a cameldriver belonged to the one of the many caravans which once, made trade through the Sahara, approaches him, intriguely looking at his plane.
Saint Exupery says to him: "Do you know that with this plane, I spend only a few hours to join Tombouctou whereas for you, it is necessary more than fifty days to reach that point?"
The cameldriver answered him back, amazed: "It is well, but what will do you do the rest of time?"

-.-

Je voudrais partager un anecdote rapportée par Saint Exupery:
Un jour qu’il était dans le désert,
Un chamelier appartenant à l’une des nombreuses caravanes qui, alors, faisaient du commerce à travers le Sahara, s’approche de lui, en regardant, intrigué, son avion.
Saint Exupery lui dit: “Sais-tu qu’avec cet avion, je ne mets que quelques heures pour rejoindre Tombouctou alors que toi, il te faut plus de cinquante jours pour y parvenir?”
Le chamelier lui rétourqua, stupéfait: “C’est bien, mais alors que fais-tu le reste du temps?”
