As you surely already noticed, you can download all the pictures, in full resolution, within my Smugmug Portfolio. (Put your cursor on a photography. A folder will appear on the right. Click on it and choose “Save Photo”.)
If by any chance you have some spare change, you can pay the artist, which is me ;D. You can buy the pictures for the modest price of 1$. For that, you need to click on the menu “Buy”, on the right-top corner, and choose “This Photo”. In the new window, choose the third tab “Downloads”.
You can also order prints of every pictures. But I will talk about that in detail in the next post.
New year Eve at Reunion Island
This year, instead of the traditional and sometimes boring new year eve’s in France, I went with a group of friend on the other hemisphere, to Reunion Island to be precise. We joined friends who live there and who had prepared everything for this last night of the year.
Near Saint Gilles, the tradition is that everyone (mainly metropolitan French) meet at the beach in the afternoon, to book a spot and get prepared for the party.
Our spot was huge, with a sound system, an handcrafted bar and big quantities of all kind of alcohols. To be frank, it was quite impressive to see this crowd on the beach, getting ready to party, wearing swimsuit (30°C).
Tired by our flight (we arrived in the morning of the 31st) and somewhat a little bit jet-lagged, we wandered off the group to lie down on the sand, closer to the water. There, we had the chance to admire a beautiful sunset.

The night was really unforgettable. Hanging out shirt-less, going from group to group and ending into the sea… that was great. However, the breathless moment appeared before midnight, where hundreds of people gather on the beach shore to light fireworks and to let fly magic lanterns (little rice paper hot balloons, propelled by pieces of fire-lighting cubes).
Tons of lanterns and colorfull fireworks illuminated the beach. Pure magic and beauty in my opinion.
