Photographer's Note

Lumires magiques (2/5)
La photographie nest-elle pas lart de capturer la lumire ? Cest ce que je vous disais dans la note de ma prcdente photo. Le soleil se couche sur La Nouvelle , un des neuf lets (hameaux) du cirque de Mafate. On y accde pied ou en hlicoptre, car ici il ny a pas de route. Il ny a pas dlectricit, sinon quelques panneaux solaires. On vit Mafate parce que lon y est n ou parce que lon est instituteur et que lon y a t mut ! Le taux de chmage est sans doute le plus lev de lle de La Runion : cest comprhensible quand il faut faire huit heures de marche pour aller bosser !
Excusez mon peu dactivit : je dmnage cette semaine.

Magic Lights (2/5)
The photograph is not the art of capturing light? That's what I said in my previous note photo. The sun sets on "La Nouvelle", one of nine islets (hamlets) of Mafate circus. It can be reached on foot or by helicopter, because here there is no road. There is no electricity or some solar panels. We live in Mafate because one was born there or because you are a teacher and you has been transferred! The unemployment rate is probably the highest in the Reunion Island: its understandable when you have to walk eight hours to go to work!
Excuse my lack of activity: I am moving this week.
