Subject: [Leica] Monets Garden in B&W

One of my greatest pleasures is to photograph in black and white, and  
for some reason the results are very often (in my opinion) humorous.  
Edward Steichen, the great American photographer, once said "The  
mission of photography is to explain man to man, and each to himself".  
I am not sure what this explains, but I found humour in the fact that  
these four visitors, whilst totally surrounded by the colour and  
beauty of Monets Garden, seem totally indifferent to all that is  
around them.
