Etienne Charlebois Spain Vacation
Etienne Charlebois Spain Vacation
[youtube id="U5Kcu5Rol-Y"] Etienne Charlebois, out of Montreal, just got home from a vacation in Spain; from Barcelona to Malaga. He took some great photos from his adventures, and managed to put together this dope video of him cruising around some of the great transition spots Spain has to offer. His focus of the trip was not to get out there and hustle for clips, but to have as much fun as possible, enjoying the famous spots and capturing the events for great memories. Here are some of his awesome photos (mostly on 35mm) from the trip.
