Association of ideas : The Lady of the Orange Mercedes

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.

    Very interesting pattern that appears to have repeated itself. Both fascinating photos.

    Not to mention the green stripes in the back

  3. The Mercedes must be an accessory, just like her hat.

    And it seems to have Portuguese plates.

    This is the kind of situation that teaches me to just stand still for a while in Paris and see what happens.
