Cinderella May and Prince Charming Macron — Street Art

This is our entry in Lens-Artists Challenge #45 Street Art.

This beautifully-drawn street art in Paris, France, features Emmanuel Macron, President of the French Republic, and Theresa May, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom (UK) and Leader of the Conservative Party.  The tableau suggest that Cinderella May, with her iconic pearl necklace and a UK sash, is leaving Prince Charming Macron behind with the UK’s (symbolic) star from the flag of the European Union (EU).  One item missing is a Brexit clock about to strike midnight. We wonder: Had this street art been composed in the UK, how would it have been different?

This is our entry in The Daily Post Photo Challenge: Experimental.

The following  macro photograph shows the results of an experiment in which a red raspberry was illuminated from the inside.  A sheet of black paper with a small hole was placed on a light table to provide the light source and the berry was centered on the hole. The berry was only about 1/2″ across but the image looks like an exploding star to us.
