I was walking home through the Jardin du Luxembourg this afternoon as the low sun broke through the clouds.  I took several photos of the formal avenues, waiting till people had moved out of view before pressing the shutter, then realised I was missing an important feature of the view.  Whether formal or naturalistic, parks are places for people.
