Taken just round the corner from Montmartre, you know, the Sacré Coeur and all that, the ponderously famous artists' Mecca, where the Mona Lisa, the world's best-known painting was, in fact, almost 500 years TO THE DAY, actually, err, not painted, but never mind, Madonna L is everywhere in Paris, including painted-being-painted in a kind of cartoony style on the side of a carousel hoarding, and why not?
Aesthetically, I'm really not sure about this shot. The two items, the painting and the merry-go-round, seem rather disparate and it's not a good idea to have two opposing elements in the same frame, but eliminating one of them here would have left a blandish scene with no context.
So, while not being convinced that they particularly complement each other, the green pole in the middle seeming to delineate two entirely different photos, that was the scene that was, and so it shall remain.
