Photograph from Tuileries Garden series receives Juror Award of Merit
My photograph entitled Pause, Tuileries Garden, Paris, France, 2011 (from the series Yours Mine Le Nôtre’s), has received Juror Award of Merit in the International Fine Art Photography Competition: Grand Prix de la Découverte. Taken from the Orangerie Museum, overlooking the Octagonal Basin, this image depicts a solitary sleeper in the late morning sun on a reclining green garden chair. Ten pigeons, siting in a row along the balustrade just behind him, are also taking in the sun. This moment is suspended in time, hence the title “Pause”.
