On this canvas there are four scenes that raise a lot of questions. I begin with the photographer in the top corner; What is it she is trying to snap? What has she seen that has so captured her imagination? Then there's the girl in the rain; What happened to her? How can she possibly want to just sit there and not take the offer an umbrella? Of course your eye my next drift to the colourful village; How is it so colourful? What secrets lay behind those closed doors? But most of all, what about the people, let's talk about them?! There is the Lady with the huge eyes and her gentleman friend intently listening to the scandal of the day and the Lady with her back to us, is the strange man with the glasses her suitor or just a voyeur?
The story sits quietly on this canvas. What do you think? What do you see. What will we find? Let's Talk!
