Just a few centuries separate those two...
Him: casually admiring the new arrangement of the statues
in the American wing of the Metropolitan Museum.
Her: Nydia, the blind flower girl of Pompeï,
the most popular American sculpture of the 19th century ,
by Randolph Rogers.

Quelques siecles les separent ...
Lui: un inconnu admirant la nouvelle disposition des statues
de l'aile Americaine du Metropolitan Museum.
Elle: Nydia, la jeune aveugle fleuriste de Pompeï,
une des statues Americaines la plus populaire du 19eme siecle.

belle composition, et puis peut être le début d'une histoire d'amour. Elle est très belle, et puis ta photo est très douce

Quand on rencontre une sculpture pareille, aussi belle, on en reste bouche bée, mais pas forcéement les bras balants.

I adore this photo. The statue is fascinating but with the man in the background, it's superb.

Ton texte me fait penser à "la Vénus d'Ille" de Mérimée, mais la staue me semble bien tendre pour le rôle titre...

Sensational. The two together - he distant and out of focus. Perfect. Love the story, love the way you've told it.
