Sometimes you shoot a celebrity without knowing. Looking back at my archives this weekend, I was stuck by the resemblance of this girl with Kaley Cuoco of the Big Bang Theory. What do you think? Kaley or not Kaley ?

Note that the picture was taken in London in July 2009 and was originally posed on my former blog. A street photographer unawarely just turned a paparazzi, shame on me!  (click on picture for high res)

Since Pope Fransisco was elected to take the head of the Catholic Church, a wind of change is blowing. The whole organization has been asked to loosen up and be closer to the people everyday life. So much, that a local father was bold enough to improvise a little swing during the pilgrimage to San Nicolas. (click on picture for high res)

30 years ago, the Virgin appeared in front of a lady from the town of San Nicolas. Since that day, between 200 and 400’00o pilgrims walk from Rosario to San Nicolas every year to commemorate the event. Not an easy trip since 60 kilometers separate the two cities.

10 years ago, your friends would vaguely know you went to Paris for a weekend and eventually see a picture or two after the fact. Nowadays, you can “tweet” or “status update” your love story live every minute.

“Kissing on top of the Eiffel Tower”
“Shopping on Les Champs-Elysées, happy!”
“Eating Mussels at Leon”
“Standing in line at the Louvres”
“Sitting on the Pont Neuf, a stranger just took our picture.”

Two years ago, our round the world trip brought us to Puerto Lopez on the Pacific shores of Ecuador. There we rested in the fishermen village for close to a week. Talking about fishermen, many of them would work long hours in the morning then spend the afternoon playing cards. Just like these two kids, soon sailors to be.  (click on picture for high res)
