11.   Carousel, Tuileries, Paris
11. Carousel, Tuileries, Paris

For part of the year, a funfair occupies the northern stretch of these Gardens, close to the Rue de Rivoli. They make a splendid sight at night and indeed I’ve been known to book into the upper floors of a hotel right opposite so I could sit in my window at night and simply observe. I wanted this composition to emphasize the sinister-looking horses rather than the fussy background.
