Strolling in Tours with the talented photographer Eddy Lust, always surprising and poetic

Touraine’s forests change colour in autumn
Eddy Lust is 20 years old and already has 7 years of photography under his belt. He takes us in his home town of Tours, on a journey wandering between summer and autumn, city and countryside, the timeless and the contemporary, day and night.

This photo was taken one misty morning. I gave myself just ten minutes in a botanical garden to capture the first colours of autumn.

From time to time, it’s good to get away from the city and appreciate the sunset from a different angle.
