Fighting for the Mona Lisa

By nellacphoto  
Held behind a rope 3 or 4 metres away, people scramble to get a photo of the iconic Mona Lisa

They would have got a better image on a postcard from the shop downstairs!

I think your pictures of people scrambling to see a picture, are more interesting, Colin. There are better paintings on the walls around it.
Well done for doing better than some Italian geezer. (As Ian Dury called him.) Smile

Loved Ian Dury's music

His poetry was clever and funny ... and the Blockheads were brilliant musicians

Madness. All that passion, lust, blood and gore on the other walls being ignored. Aren't we humans weird and downright silly. I probably fit right in Smile

Enjoying the 21st century version of Rodin's the thinker in the public. having two fingers up your nostrils to mimic a thinking process is new to me Smile

Is it possible to view any image properly under such conditions, I wonder?

What would Leonardo think I have to wonder. The herd describes the mentality and behaviour. I agree with dudler than viewing this painting under such conditions is close to impossible.

Being famous has its disadvantages..
