Happy New Year!

happy new year 2012

One day of summer of 2008, tired of not being able to sleep due to the jet lag, I got up from my bed in a gorgeous villa in Moorea (French Polynesia), took my camera and went outside. There I surprised a couple of middle aged tourists getting inside the dreamy waters of the island at daybreak. I took a shot without hesitation.

Life is hard sometimes, and so different from the picture we had of it when we were young, however, if we get up everyday willing to make the most of it, we might be able to seize some magic moments like this one.

Happy 2012 everyone! Let’s hope we have the courage to make an effort and live without conditions, ready to fail and get up again.

PS:By the way, the couple turned out to be my parents!
