Thanks for the ribbon, I don't get them often these days.

This photo was a lucky chance. There was an abandoned hat lying there and I thought I will shoot it with the Eiffel tower, I did not think about the challenge, just playing with ideas. And then this old beggar walks into my frame!

Now I think it was a pity the hat was there as his silhouette mimics the Eiffel tower and there is a feeling of "us and them".

Good street shot. Nice juxtaposition of elements - almost surreal.

Oh boy, a super story, and an iconic landmark. perhaps the french might say "Vous avez attrapé le papillon et l'a rendu encore plus spécial" or maybe not. Either way, I scored your shot an 8.
