Paris (France). When spring comes, people leave their homes and populate parks and gardens. This happens more or less everywhere in the world (at least, in those places with a certain difference between seasons), and I think this is something that goes far beyond the simple need of sun and fresh air. There’s a sense of “sharing a common place” in it, something that brings people closer, reducing their distances and – at my eyes – creating a better environment. This photo has been taken in Paris, at the Parc du Palais Royal, but it could easily be a park in London, Milan or New York. This old woman was so concentrated on her book, that she even did not notice me (and my camera). And I think that this photo, without her reading a book on the bench, wouldn’t have been the same.
