This chap seemed rather incongruous lying on the lawn in full shirt and slacks bedecking when most of the people around that day were in shorts and summery attire.

I thought I'd play with the angle a bit to set him off jauntily with the somewhat stern statue in the background. So laid back he's falling over.

Paris parks get invaded at this time of year and the ban on lying on the grass has long gone from many of them so it's a fairly free for all, although some places, like the Parc Buttes Chaumont, seem to get more than their fair share of sun worshippers.

I was in the Jardin de Luxembourg the other day and saw a couple of people getting peeped at by a whistle-branding Nazi park attendant for the crime of sitting under a tree on one of their sacred lawns. I guess when there are hundreds of free chairs all over the place they feel justified in keeping some things taboo like in the good old days... what do you think?

And why not...
