This is a collection of souvenirs, beauties, lights and moments. These photographs were taken in June 2016 during a 5 500 kms roadtrip from France to Portugal through Spain.  They’re not presented in chronological order but following sunlight, to recreate the feeling you get when you spend long hours driving on your own watching the light change.
