The Flower Carrier

San Francisco, California

This woman's attire is uncannily similar to the colours and patterns in the painting.

Yes, the jacket or sweater is similar as well as the pattern in the dress and the pattern in the basket. This painting was made in 1935 during the years of the Great Depression. Some believe that the enormous basket strapped to the man’s back is representative of the encumbrances of an unskilled worker in a modern, capitalistic world. This metropolitan young woman admiring the painting reminds me that much has changed and yet still remains the same. Occupy San Francisco was forefront in the headlines the week this photo was made.

This is really an excellent photo, what a pleasure to see good photography instead of too many snapshots!
Here there is a sure technical quality, but what appeals me is the clever attention to the composition, with the jacket of the lady which matches so well the scene in the painting.
I really adore this photo, bravo!
