The Orange Girl


The girls you meet in the Jardin de Luxembourg, I tell you! One of the marvellous things about Paris, and this famous garden in particular, is that they are always surprising you with some weird and wonderful exhibition or other.

Not much to say about this pic technically speaking. The bright sky behind and the dark statue caused typical problems with the inevitable trade off between detail in the sky and detail in the face. You have to go for more detail in the face in this case, because although a silhouette would be intriguing you would lose more than gain (in my opinion), not least the gorgeous orange coloured... oranges, which complement the green of the trees and the statue perfectly.

A great find. What do the letters on the oranges spell out?

That's a good question - I tried but I gave up - I'll give it another go!
