The Weekend in Black and White

This statue, in the northeast corner of
the Tuileries, is called Retour de Chasse
(aka Home From the Hunt), sculpted
by Antonin Carlès and completed in 1888.
It depicts a young man returning
from the hunt with a deer that he has killed
with a bow and arrow.

  1. The sun and clouds add so much.

    Speaking of deer, I believe the name of the hunter’s father was Veni. So, the photo could be said to be of Veni’s son.

  2. Super shot; love the angle and contrast. And oh....Tall Gary's pun is great....

  3. Excellent silhouette against that lovely sky!
