In the Jardin du Luxembourg the horse chestnut trees are in full leaf now.  The solid blocks of foliage cast dark bands of shade and the low evening sun, reaching between the trees, seems all the brighter in contrast.  It was a chilly evening so, in the open centre of the park, the people basking in the sun were wrapped in warm coats and the elongated shadows show more chairs vacant than occupied.
