Hi everybody. I hope you had a great day and will have a great week end as I do. I know that I will have a great week end because I am currently working on achieving my dreams, in New York. Every day of hard work make my journey a delight as every day I learn. One of my greatest achievement has been to admit that being wrong can be a good thing if you accept to learn from others and follow the right path. Nobody can be right all the time. A leader is not the one who is always right but the one who always take the right decisions.
Being that happy motivated me to share with you some memories from Paris, the city I was living in and that I left for a better futur in New York. I remember the amazingly beautiful Magatte that reminded me how God, if exist, was cool to men like men but putting in hearth such beautiful creatures, lol.
Doing street style in Paris, walking long hours to capture natural beauty on the street made me encounter beautiful red hair girls. I’ve been told that “Orange is the new black”. I totally agree. Especially when it comes with a beautiful greeting smile.
I’ve never thought that after quitting a french female magazine because of humanist values issues, I would be able to see so much beauty in a city. Quitting a french female magazine was one of my best career decision. I always follow my heart because being happy has always been more important to me than being rich or famous. I took a huge risk as suddenly I was unemployed. But living a great life is about experimenting great emotions that will stay with you the rest of your life. Money comes and go, not memories and skill earn along the way.
I was the first street style photographer in France, at a time where no magazine wanted to do it. Now all french magazines do it. I gained nothing about being an innovator because France is France and do all what it could to make me leave and moved in New York. I am more happy than ever because I control my destiny, no matter the consequences. Control your destiny and feel the taste of freedom, the most delightful taste in the world. And it all started because french magazine never answered to may numerous emails and phone call to do street style photography for them. Sometimes, a NO is the message you need to hear to follow your heart and achieve your dreams. Be in charge of your life my friend and see smiles along your way. Have a great day.
