On the grounds of the Louvre a young couple approached me and asked how much would I charge to take their picture. I was a little puzzled but given I was the only one that day with a tripod maybe it made sense. With their limited english and my nonexistent slavic language facility somehow we managed the exchange of email addresses and the agreement to send them photos at no charge. A lovely couple but I found this scene in the background more interesting as a “painting”.

Sadly, Wayne, the Louvre was first on my list when I was going to be in Paris for a few days in early March, 2020. Thanks for giving me a slight glimpse of it. This image clearly provides me with a idea of the throng with which I would have dealt. Also, I found the faces of the two women in the foreground to be slightly distorted; to me this is a brilliant touch. - - My best always, michael

An interesting story and a piece of impressionistic art very well done, Wayne! My sincere compliments! Cheers! PDE

Thanks, Michael. I usually try to transform, distort, disguise people in my images. I want their forms and body language but not their identities.

Like the contrasting link fence in the foreground, it unites this composition with the darker subjects in the background, well done and presented.
