Some time ago; less than a year ago, I saw something; maybe a film, 
maybe a video - I don't remember - which showed an esteemed male Swiss 
photographer who was nearly physically sick at being asked to do work in 
the incredible abandoned (once palace) of a now famous model from India. 
She could even have been his wife.

His orderly Swiss mind and regimented upbringing could not cope with such 
a difference in habitation from his home setting.

Some people need to get out more, or read more books !! 
(Sez he who is unlikely to ever travel overseas again ! )

By the way, I  like all of your daily life and health shots. I think they are 
as well as being educational and cause for much thought.
