Coming home to Canada, I retouched nature.

Working hard away in Asia for more than an year, nature became minimal and ignored. Aside from going to the office, lifestyle consisted of outings to a mall, a theatre or a restaurant, but never to a park, a lake nor a mountain. I felt imprisoned in a city.

One weekend in Shenzhen, China, I decided to visit the forgotten ocean. I took the subway and rode on a line that went along the coast.
