And in my quest to squeeze every Kodak film into cameras and the best out of it on film, it certainly caught my attention too, when I first discovered,that not only Apple gets their inspiration from the zoo when branding their products. So may I present, the new find from the photographic animal farm: the slide film that was called Kodak Ektachrome Panther 400:

    AGFA CT Precisa 200: A Film with the Pox

    We are all in love with the marvelous and unchallenged pinnacle of colour-cross-explosion of the Agfa CT Precisa 100.

But, this black sheep in the family surprised me with unprecedented effects. This film is sick – it has the pox!

    Marae of Taputapuatea

    When I arrived on Raiatea last summer and asked people what could be interesting to visit on this island, all told me "marae of Taputapuatea".... sorry, but "mara-what of Tapauatatu what????" Didn't absolutely understand what was the name of this place and what it could be.... Curious to know more about this strange place? Don't worry, I'll explain it to you :)

    Papeete, the Big City of French Polynesia

    If you have the chance one day to visit French Polynesia, the city of Papeete will be the first place you'll see and visit. If you expect the mythical image of Tahiti, you'll be disappointed, because it's not the right place for this! But there are other things to see...
