On this day I visited Carnavalet Museum again. And as I came out from the there, in the backyard of the Historic Library of the City of Paris, I found them singing, singing medieval songs. They were all dressed in appropriate colourful costumes from the period. There was a multitude of people where this event was taking place. As I wanted to photograph them singing, I would have liked to be in the first row. But that's life; the people who had the privilege of arriving there earlier than I already occupied the entire front row. So, I gradually moved my way among the people and I finally succeeded at finding a place in the second row. As you can see in the photo, I included some of the audience in order to capture the cheerful atmosphere of this tiny but a very lively event. I am still not certain about the anachronism that I created by including a couple in the first row. You will be the judge.
In my next posting, I will be able to present the three ladies to you in their colourful costumes.
For listening to what the songs are like, please copy and past the link in URL, thank you.

You chose the audience members well, Nobu. One can tell from their backs that they are listening intently and very involved. Beautiful group of singers. and although the colors seem random, there is a bit of blue sky reflected in the windows which picks up the blue plaid shirt very nicely!
And, as always with Nobu, there is a subtle play of horizontal lines of the window frames and the listeners - well framed.

The traditional costumes are main asset to the compo., Nobu, and imaginable hearing the singing through...
Good management on colors and mild light.

I like the colours, style and textures of the costumes and the audience really seems to be concentrating on the singing. Interesting and colourful composition.
All the best

Hello dear Nobu,
It must have been very interesting to hear them sing midieval songs wering those costumes appropriate for that period. They have chosen the right place to render these songs in their beautiful voices. I am sure one must be hearing only the songs nothing else. I see how the people in front of you listening intensly without even turning their heads. Their colorful costumes also grab the attention. Even the windows of the libray look charming . Beautiful atmosphere with beautiful people and the photographer.
With warm regards,
