A Happy Place

“Happiness is as a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but which if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.”

— Nathaniel Hawthorne

  1. The colors and arrangement, all this creates a great, surreal-abstract composition. I love it !

  2. ahhh, thats very fine. i love the minimalistic. the grey underground, the white table in two versions and the pink table with the friendly people.

  3. Love this composition! The fact that it is the occupied table which is coloured is a great touch.

  4. This must really be a happy place with fresh colors on one table. Love the contrast in that wonderful composition.

  5. Un contraste et un cadrage magnifiques!

  6. Brilliant! The people and pink table and chairs feel safe and grounded. However, the higher white tables/chairs compete for attention. They are not as strong a subject but feel freer, less anchored — giving wonderful energy. Then there’s the progression, top to bottom, from simplistic to more complex…
    What can I say…I wish I’d made this photo. :-)
