Well, well . . .

At last, I managed to create an account on 500px. For a few weeks, I have been thinking about it and never could decide myself on the name I wanted to put here. I know I could change it afterwards, but then I am trying to do things right and try not to go back on my decisions.

So today I posted some 8 photos of a German friend - Kristina who wanted some portraits of her and while the session was improvised, I did in my opinion get some decent and lovely shots of her. I wished I had had time to do a session "en bonne et due forme" for her because I really thought she had something of Brigitte Bardot in her and I wanted to go a bit retro for her. But then, two days after this shoot, she was flying back to Berlin.

I think I'm going to post a few others pictures of Chayma, another friend but from Morocco this time and whom I shot on the same day as Kristina. Along with this post I am uploading a picture of Kristina in colour as on my photos gallery, I posted the black and white version just to keep the uniformity, but then I really prefer the colour version. What do you think? (here is the black and white version http://500px.com/photo/2955401)

P.S. This is truly weird to go look for my small island on the map cause it is weird how Mauritius does not appear and that I had to zoom like 25 times before getting to see at least where I live. But then, my village name does not even appear :S
