Just like last year, we all are committing to not giving Christmas presents among the adults. The fact that we all are together is enough of a present. So I was surprised when Fely and Nagi approached me tonight and presented me with a book by photographer Philippe Decressac. Naturally they insisted this was not a Christmas present, but something that Nagi came across in a shop and wanted me to have.
To be quite honest, I did not know the photographer at all. But his work is impressive. The book covers photos from his trips around the world and many of the shots are nothing but stunning.
This is a book I will study for a while, part enjoying the photos, part thinking about how he took them (and part how I can match this :) ).
Thank you, Nagi and Fely – what a thoughtful gift.
