Instantly liked it!

Kertész would be happy with that.

The chairs are clearly deeply involved in conversation, but what are they saying?

Tuileries, maybe ?

Luxembourg. I had missed the title.

Wonderful, as your photos always are. The comparison to Kertesz is interesting, since Kertesz’ photos of French chairs tend to reinforce the “pelouse interdite” rigorous orderliness that is so distinctive of French gardens (which I actually love, in part because it’s counterintuitive: French gardens belong in English culture and English gardens belong in French culture).

By contrast, your chairs’ causal randomness takes French out of the French garden, paradoxically making it more French!

Kertesz’s photograph of chairs at the Medici fountain — as compared to those in gardens — shares this relaxed suggestion of conversation, as well as significant shadows.
