Association of ideas : The Lady of the Orange Mercedes

Vendredi, novembre 5th, 2010

I took a picture of this Mercedes in a street by Les Halles, probably attracted by its weird orange color. A couple of minutes later, I crossed path with that lady and automatically took her picture. That reason became clearer while reviewing the sequence of these shots : it looks like our brain has an inconscious short term memory of colors and structures, or who knows,  a special ability to detect a link between a car and its owner.
