Your guess is as good as mine

Maybe better. I have no idea what is going on in this photo. It's long telephoto shot of a few boats in the canal that flows in front of the Château de Chambord. The bright red wigs (at least I think they're wigs) are funny enough, but then there's the huge white Marie-Antoinette thing on the right.

They were quite far from where I was standing. I didn't even notice the white wig until I looked at the picture at home.

I'm not even certain that they're all women. I saw no signs of any filming (like for a television commercial) or other photography (like for a print ad). Just a bunch of people in a few rental boats. You see the weirdest things when you venture out.

  1. At first glance I'd say it was a hen party, but I think that at least half of them are male. The lady in the sunglasses looks very fed up. Hm, you could spin a whole movie plot from this one photo - classic! Pauline

  2. Before-the-wedding outing?

  3. Wow. I'd go for some kind of pre-wedding party, too. They do some odd things in France for bachelorette parties, I've seen.

  4. The red-wigged third from the left looks masculine to me! That would be a fun party to be part of - anyway - it is sure different from anything I've ever seen. Maybe you're right, though. It could easily be part of a group for a photo someplace up or downstream. That white wig looks hot to me (temperature - hot!).

  5. Maybe they're sisters out with grandma.

  7. I could be wrong butt the dark haired person in the white boat is definitely male (and the person next to him).
