>Breiz, Ma Bro... An ode to Brittany

"Breiz Ma Bro", or rather "Bretagne ma Patrie"/ "Brittany my Home Country"...
Funny thing no? How's a girl from Beirut calling Brittany her Country??...
Don't get me wrong, despite all the mixed feelings, I am still proud to be a Beiruti! But you see, when I call Brittany Home, it is related to deep feeling of serenity and calm and how all fits into place when you actually get home...

It all happened years back when I actually first stepped on the "Granit Rose" rocks of Perros-Guirec. WOW. Breathless, Speechless...
How the wild ocean have sculpted these is simple perfection.
The Lighthouse is there as well to guide you to serendipity.
I was directing a photoshoot last week for RJmag near Guingamp, and i felt like someone introducing his spouse to his family for the time, anxious and eager to see their reaction...
The whole team loved it! There were french models among us who had not set foot there and yet have travelled all around the world: "Funny thing that a girl like you is showing us our country!" they said...
What's there not to love? The nature, the people, the food, the beer, the music..
Long live the Celts!
Some historians say they originally came from the Middle-east, so there you go ;-)
Enjoy...
