The Geneva Journey

Posted by
Nitin (Mayenne, France) on 20 December 2014 in Documentary & Street.

"Do you think you love that fellow?""I don't know." She closed her eyes, but the tears overflowed nevertheless. "All I know is that he opened a door into a whole new world I never even knew existed. I've stepped through that door, and I cant return.(...) Its like being blind from birth and then one day suddenly being able to see. And not just see, but to witness the sun rising in all her glory across the azure sky. The dusky lavenders and blues lightening to pinks and reds, spreading across the horizon until the entire earth is lit. Until one has to blink and fall to ones knees in awe at the light.(...) Even if one were to be made blind again in the next instant, one would ever after remember and know what was missed. What could be."
Elizabeth Hoyt

We spent a beautiful few days in Geneva with our friend Dominique, also a film director and a brilliant photographer who was our tourist guide but also doubled up as our personal photographer. Geneva was a beautiful little city, we had some incredible weather and made the full use of it. We were also very happy to meet his friend Eduardo and his lovely family!

This picture was taken on our first evening in Geneva from Dominique's rented apartment kitchen window.
