2017-05-08A Travel: Lanzarote - A Lost Place between Mala and the Sea

Today's morning session took place at and around the ruins of a once surely beautiful villa in the middle of a cactus plantation between the village of Mala and the sea.

On the island of Lanzarote and espacially close to Mala there still are a few places where they grow the indian fig opuntia and use it as a host plant to farm Cochineal lice to produce crimson dye.

We decided to change models every 45 Minutes and to choose different locations per team. Fortunately the area was large enough.

Our sets were:

  • Sanchez in the ruins
  • Sandrin in a different part of the ruins
  • #KATAHE with a parachute on a rock with a view
  • Rassamee and a crumbling stone wall
  • Fräulein Frisco at the rear wall off the villa
  • The 4 X Virgins project, inspired by Terry Richardson, John, Yoko and K1
I liked all sets although the one with the parachute was the most spectacular one and 4X Virgins the funniest.The images shown here are mostly previews again, taken with an art filter to make them usable out of cam.
