I need your help.  I’m trying to figure out what I find attractive in this photo.

The young lady?  She is not at all bad looking, of course.  But I could have asked her to pose in a better way, I could have taken a photo of her from the top of her head down to her freshly painted toenails.  And with a better background.  But I didn’t.  I wanted to take this photo just as I took it.  I like it.  I like the messy setting.  Shop window in the background, rocks, grass, horrible fencing…

Am I going mad?  What do you think?

The girl is French, by the way, enjoying a sunny weekend on the Belgian coastline.  It is not a snapshot, she is in fact posing for me.  I just wanted to make it look like a snapshot.
