I have photographed many persons, things, places or animals during my career but I find the following story enough interesting and want to tell you about it.

It is the story of a snail who wanted to have his picture taken.

I met him during a walk in a park near my home, I asked him to pose for a very slowly shooting session.

The day after I was so surprised to see a whole familly outside my window waiting their turn.

This day began this funny serie of  theses friendly gastropods far from the tumult of the town and the 24-hour news.
