What is the worst nightmare for a creative person? Be in front of a white pages and not being able to create.When I was in Nantes, I was literally surrounded with Art in every corner of the town, so much creativity that I kind of overwhelmed and wasn’t even able to doodle.Total blank!
If Creativity doesn’t show up, get out, do something else!
So I decided to forget about it. To enjoy my family holidays without drawing. Just having fun, visiting, eating, discovering, just being in the moment with the only purpose to have a good time. On our way to the Hangar à bananes, I saw this huge Earth hanging from the sky ( actually a huge yellow crane). and I was thinking that I could try to do one one those photos, where it seems like you are holding an big object between two fingers. It’s safe to say that I’m not a professional photographer 😀 . I tried a million time, I did not get one suitable picture. Still my sister was having fun and she suggested that she could pretend to hold earth with both hands ( I suspect she thought it would be easier for me) but it came out that way:
Yes I can be that good sometimes…nah let’s pretend that I was so unfocus that I didn’t notice that the head of my sister was in the shoot 😀 .

I was trying to figure out how I managed to take such “good” picture and the more I looked at the picture, the more I saw appearing a bull. A bull looking at Earth. It reminded me of a famous Spanish song. “El toro y la luna*” written by Carlos Castellano Gómez. It is about a bull, who fell in love with the Moon.
There are different versions of this song, my favorite is the one of Marisol (famous Spanish singer and actress).
