I live on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean and my eyes turned towards the ocean, I hate crowds and I adore solitude, a real sauvage.Je not pass a day without laughter impossible for me.Lifestyle, one word to me, enjoyed life, I bodyboarding, bodysurfing, vélo.Ah yes if you like not the ocean, it's not even bother to go further, because my photos are usually pictures of waves, bodyboarding, bodysurfing, surfing, beaches, so if you like good, otherwise goodbye ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: ::::::::::::::::

    "Hakahonu is a master of his trade, he mainly photographs the ocean and its waves, he achieves amazing and exciting work. He lives by the water and plays in it and one can see through his photography his love of the ocean and the sports that go with it. He is a fun loving person who prefers his solitude and absolutely loves his surroundings. You will be enthralled with his talent, please check out his photos. Thank you Hakahonu."

    "Bonjour Éric
    Je ne sais pas faire de longues phrases alors je dirai simplement surtout ne change pas. Continue à nous éblouir les yeux avec tes photos magnifique. Dans Hakahonu personnellement je vois la rage de la danse Maori et en opposition le douceur des îles.
    Je ne veux pas percer ton mystère il n’appartient qu'à toi !
    Merci pour tout.

    "Hakahonu :::::::::::::
    c'est un nom d'une douceur qui pour moi désigne l'esprit libre :::::::::::::::
    Un esprit libre, c'est un esprit qui peut voyager dans toutes les sphères lorsqu'il n'est pas habité par un corps. Avant la naissance de l'être nous nageons dans la lumière et nous sommes libre, léger, en paix, rempli d'amour, sans soucis , sans tracas et tous les tra la la !
    En regardant les photos d'Éric vous découvrirez un homme qui dégage ce rayonnement, lorsqu'il est dans l'océan. Il se sent habité par elle :::::::: et emporté par le courant et les vagues qui lui rappelle le mouvement de l'esprit libre! Et cela se ressent dans tout son être! Cette passion pour l'eau le ramène à la source de lui-même et se connecte facilement avec le monde de l'océan! C'est à travers des photos d'Éric que je vous invite à sentir son regard sur l'océan et de percevoir cette paix bénéfique que l'eau peut nous apporté. De percevoir tout autant, aussi les défies de la vie! Par les vagues énormes que l'océan peut laisser! imaginer un homme surfé sur la vague sans avoir peur, Un belle exemple pour un nouveau défie dans votre vie!
    Éric tes photos sont superbes tu nous fait voir et vivre de bon moment à regarder tes photos!
    Amitié Sarah et bisous!"

    "Je ne sais pas quoi veut dire "Hakahonu" mais j'ai inventé la traduction: Passionné, obsédé, amoureux de la mer et de la nature solitaire, libre et sauvage qui n'admet aucune soumission à l'homme.

    Hakahonu la respecte, l'adore, la contemple et veut nous la montrer dans toute sa puissance et beauté, tel qu'elle est. Il peut le faire, il le fait, car il es un photographe exceptionnel.

    Et la nature se laisse photographier par son amoureux, se donne à lui et offre à ses yeux, sans aucune honte, ses eaux émeraudes, la beauté de ses fleurs, la douceur de ses tapis de sables dorés, la merveille de ses couchers de Soleil, sa calme, sa rage, son agitation, sa serenité...

    “Hakahonu” veut dire aussi "Poisson" dans ma traduction. Si vous le regardez bien vous allez voir les palmes de ses mains, ses dafins de couleurs, comment il parle avec gloubs gloubs dans l'eau, pas de problèmes... Je pense que Hakahonu est le seul homme-poisson ou le seul poisson-homme qu'il existe, et c'est pour ça qu'il exprime sa joie de vivre dans deux mondes à la fois.

    Ce poisson adore aussi le ciel et les nuages. Il ne lui manque que voler, mais ça va lui arriver s'il le veut.

    Merci Hakahonu pour nous faire sentir dans le coeur de tes vagues, pour nous faire connaître tes plages, pour nous faire voyager avec tes nuages.
    Encore Merci et Félicitations pour cette galérie si agréable et belle."
