Les silhouettes



Seen in a shop in the 5eme
full of handmade toys

These tin figures danced in the shadow
of Notre Dame seen in the distance.

Hello Genie:
How wonderful are these tin figures, and so beautifully displayed. We should immediately wish to gather them all up and take them home where they would become 'art' in the drawing room.

It is such an artistic photo, Genie! You caught the drama that I think the artist intended! And Notre Dame reflected, a very special spot!

I really like this one Genie. Great use of silhouette and depth of field. The cut outs look like they are about to come to life.
