Yesterday, I take pictures of the buidings reflections in this rear-view mirror.
He comes in front of me and says, slow & kind voice :
- "That's coool watcha doin'..."
After having thanked him, I dare asking :
- "Would you stand on this side ? I'll try to show you somethin' fun".
He goes. I click three times. I show him.
We give each other 5.
Coooooool, Life ;)
(especially when we - him like me - accept to go beyond appearances ?


Hier, je photographie le reflet des immeubles dans ce rétroviseur.
Il arrive devant moi et me dit, voix lente & gentille :
- "C'est cooool, ce que tu fais..."
Après l'avoir remercié, j'ose lui demander :
- "Tu veux bien te mettre de ce côté ? Je vais tenter de te montrer un truc sympa".
Il se place. Je clique trois fois. Lui montre.
On se tape dans la main.
Coooooool, la Vie ;)
(surtout quand nous - lui comme moi - acceptons d'aller au-delà des apparences ?
