This was a very solemn week, the Queen’s jubilee and the much anticipated release of the French President’s official portrait. In both cases, much to see, and plenty of commentaries about both “events”. I abstain from making any judgments, and prefer silence, listening to the Masters. Few pictures about the events in Syria, should there be more?, they wouldn’t change the course of events with the predominant cynicism. News on Radio programs announced a new massacre? they confirmed that nothing would be decided, China and Russia refused any intervention. As I write, Paris is as dark as November, and spirits are gloomy. The weather requires two extra “stops” photographically speaking as compared to a typical month of June... Have a nice week!
