I know nothing about this photograph, other than that I love it. I am not even sure where I took it. Somewhere between Printemps and Café de la Paix. It feels very French to me, the way the woman stands tall, despite being tethered. It reminds me of Les Francais themselves - they are tethered to their past and to their culture in a way many modern societies are not, and yet, they stand tall, not afraid to be themselves.
