After the long travel, it feeled good to be in Nouna and I enjoyed the beautiful garden of the "Touba" guesthouse where we stayed to make some first shots with the Jupiter3+ lens mounted on my Canon P. I also took some shots of little Felix, the son of our tenants who was so sweet and always willing to be photographed. Later, we made a visit to the traditional district chief and I asked him his authorization to take pictures of the people of Nouna for my portraits project. He agreed for it and was willing to take the pose with his family for some portraits: the realisation of the project had started! :)

    You take really amazing portraits. I love that you get out there in the world and shoot these amazing people in places I've never been and capture the emotion and feeling of their worlds. Very nice. Nat Geo should call on you.
