I took this photograph as a vistor walked by a Renoir painting titled 'La Moulin de la Galette.' He fits nicely into a relatively empty spot in the painting, and seems to be looking to see what the woman in the striped dress is gazing at.

    Much warmer than the blue previous version. The man seems to be getting out of the painting. Great shot, well cropped.
