A cold, sunny Sunday morning in the Jardin du Luxembourg. Garden chairs in a chaotic clutter (singles, couples, small huddles and expansive groups) map the social interactions of a mild Saturday afternoon.
Visitors are free to move the chairs around the garden paths, though the lawns are off limits. In summer the chairs spread out in the shade and sun as each person chooses their preferred aspect. On a bright but cool autumn afternoon there’s general agreement that the places where the low sun reaches between the trees are best.
