P is for Parisians

Last year we were in Paris and took a trip down the River Seine on a bateau-mouche. It was around lunchtime on a pleasant sunny day, so people came outside to eat their lunch. These particular Parisians were sitting on a set of steps that lead up from the river to the embankment.

This shot works much better in monochrome than colour because of the strong lines, with the steps providing a pleasing diagonal.
