She Nose Nothing

What's this all about then, eh?! Well, two things really.

One is the contrast of blatant modern consumerist values slammed up against a classic building from another era who would probably have thought someone wearing shades like those was from another planet...

And the second thing that makes this shot fun is the total disrespect someone has had for the poster, and by implication the girl, in their careful positioning of the sticker on her face.

There's a Parisian movement which 'strikes' metro stations and other ad-infested places without warning and covers them in their own graffiti, which of course looks even more horrible, but they do make you think about all the subliminal buying signals and shit we are constantly being bombarded with. There are times when I respect disrespect.

Yeah, but you gotta love those frames! That's a cool look. I see they haven't painted the Odeon yet (that's it in the backround, isn't it?)

Tomate, that would probably be the Pantheon in the background I think if I remember correctly! Nice shades, in fact, yes, but it's the nose furniture that lets the look down ;-)

Could you tell me what exactly says the sticker on her nose?
