I like this a lot! Why? ...It's not the "normal" touristy view, a unique perspective, perfect composition with the layers: greenery in the foreground, people in the middle ground, and the structure framing the view of the mall with, is it the Paris Military School? in the far distance.
Thank you mallen. You're right about the building at the far end of lawns ..... that building would have been a worthwhile subject in its own right.. but it certainly anchored the center of this high perspective shot. I hadn't even heard the term "street" photography when this picture was taken, but it certainly seems to fit the bill.
