Photographer's Note

English version:

The foodstore in front has closed its door. On the awning we can read: "My grocer is an a great guy". With the drawing down, the message becomes quite surprising. I decided to take the picture at the corner of the fruit juice stall just in front to create the illusion that the sentence was directed to it... I rushed to take my picture when I saw a guy with a hat would pass by....

It's later, when I discovered my photo on my computer's screen that the Banana Republic idea has emerged: because of the fruits, but also because of the two letters from the graffiti...

I made a more insolent version here, if you want to have a look:

Banana Republic



Version franaise:

L'picerie d'en face a ferm ses portes. Sur l'auvent on peut lire : "Mon picier est un type formidable". Avec le dessin en dessous, le message prend une connotation assez surprenante. J'ai dcid de prendre la photo depuis le coin de la baraque jus de fruit, juste en face, pour crer l'illusion que la phrase lui est destine...

Je me suis prcipite pour prendre ma photo quand j'ai vu qu'un type avec un chapeau allait passer par l …. C'est plus tard, quand j'ai dcouvert ma photo sur mon cran d'ordinateur, que l'ide de Rpublique bananire m'est venue l'esprit: cause des fruits, mais aussi cause des deux lettres du graffiti...

J'ai cre une version plus insolente ici, si vous voulez aller voir :

Banana Republic
