Basile Pesso from Barcelona, Spain

Very interesting catch with two very different attitudes among which my preference goes to the quiet one of the girl, and I like a lot the graphics of the obliques.
Here is a song that I love by The Wedding Present, it'll go well with the scene :
I'm Always the Quiet One.

16 Aug 2013 12:29am

@Basile Pesso: The song was perfect! I really enjoyed it. I listened to it late last night.

Calusarus from Drome des collines, France
