Voyage en péniche

It is twenty years that I live on a boat in Paris, very near the Eiffel Tower, in a port where are mixed many kind of crazy people in the middle of very old bargemen. This year as we do every decade, we had to get to the shipyard to check the hull and make some small works. The last time I went on a shipyard I was very young and not yet a photographer. This time I felt like I couldn't miss out on documentary the trip with the boat, and on photographing that final place which was founded 100 years ago. Using the camera of my mobile phone instead of my 35mm during the moving was easyier as I had to help with the boat, and a way to share this great time with somebody I love and I wished could be there with me.
