Belle étincelle

Lagarde-Enval - At Grand-Pa's (Corrèze), France

Je revenais aux sources, je voyais les farfelus et la vie aux champs. Les grand-parents avaient su me donner l'amour de la communication difficile, la maison en pierre, et les vaches devant. Les abeilles se ramenaient, normal nous étions en été, et personne ne courrait comme un dératé devant la bestioles aux ailes. Ne vous en faîtes pas, elle est bien plus libre que vous.

I was back to the beginning, I could see the weird guys and life in the fields. My grand-parents knew how to give me the love for the difficult communication, the stonehouse, and the cows in front. The bees were coming by, as usual, this is summer, and nobody was running like a fool in front of the insects with wings. Don't worry, the bee is freer than you.

From inside cultures, people and countries, Léon wants to reflect the world as it is. With and without lines, Léon tries not to lie about what he sees and lets know what people express, and what landscapes tell.

After all your photos on the road, this one looks like a peaceful rest for the heart. Beautiful angle indeed

@Z: I was back home, in the house that saw me growing up. I had to take some time off, just resting in this far from everything land.
