Week number 42 – PROJECT 52×2#2014


WK42_col – Lusi, the board and the pomegranate

When Lusi got her board, she didn’t like the design on it so she decided to take matters in hand. The result was this beautiful artwork she drew with a pen.

Last I’ve heard, Lusi’s fine amd the board took some damage.. not sure about the the pomegranate..

WK41_col – Honda Vs. The world!

I randomly met Sean while in Casablanca where we were both servicing our motorbikes.

Sean had more than 60 thousand kilometres on his 1987 C90 travelling from from Alaska to the south pole, across  Africa and Europe.. during three years. A truly inspiring trip.

WK41_bw – Sometimes, I want to be little again.

Swings are great, they’re some of the first catalysers that make you get out out of your comfort zone as a child.. thinking too much can make you loose that momentum.

Get your kid on a swing and tell them to take a leap of faith!

Does the flower know it ain’t gonna see the night through? That fragrance, those colours and that bloom… I’m sure it does.

This little fella goes by the name of “Ammi Osman” around where I live.

– Corto to himself: Wouldn’t just be great to live a fairy tale..
– Bouche dorée to Corto: Oh yes… But you’re constantly living a fairy tale and you don’t realise it anymore. When an adult enters the world of tales, he cannot get out of it anymore. Did you know that?
