This of course means, that the city and I were modelling for what used to be the_sarcastic_photographer, now sony_alpha_guy, who I can’t thank enough, simply for the fact that he was one of the best people to walk around Paris streets with. … Continue reading Paris, August ’16

In a tragic event, she had lost her mother, and since the rules of society are merciless in fairy-tales, her father remarried, not to a darling, kind woman he fell in love with, but a bitchy, dreadful mistress of Satan, who brought two … Continue reading Glass Slippers and a Reality Check – How CINDERELLA Should Be Told
