Photographer's Note

nubra valle (ladakh)

hello the world

I came back in India to be part of a camel trek, the plan was to offer a travel two 4 Bactrians camel (two bump ones) from ladakh to Rajasthan (pushkar camelfair )were only dromadary's (one bump ones) population are found and make a video documentary of it. The story took us (5 people)tree incredible months, the "upper wallas" ,the gods, were not gentle with our odyssey. The idea was for me romantic but like the omer's Odyssey nothing went the way we espected, some masala (spices) in life and a big lesson "DO NOT EXPECT ANY THING OF ANYTHING" my words of wisdom.

by the way it is plastic camel in the photos did you expect it...

j'etais de retour en inde pour un projet video: faire voyager des chameaux a deux bosses du Ladakh au Rajasthan (foire aux chameaux de pushkar ). nous etions 5 $ chameaux, le nom de l'expedition :cameloddyssey. Comme dans l'odyssey de Omer rien ne se passa comme prevu, 3 mois de galere au sens propre ,les dieux (upper wallas)ont du bien s'amuser. l'aventure a ete formidable ,le documentaire est en train d'etre coupe,il verrira une idee que je j'appris en voyage: il ne faut rien attendre de rien.

a propos ce sont des chamaux en plastic ...
