  • Meet Henri in the Jungle.

    It was a hot and sunny Saturday in Paris, rainbow colors on backgrounds of blue skies. It was the Gay Pride Parade walking down Henri IV boulevard, columns of sounds, colors, and youth, on a river of blasting electronic noises.

    This homeless man seemed to be vaguely enjoying it, and I thought he looked just like Henri IV must have looked, with his salt & pepper beard... Just another day in the jungle of history.
