Esprit Jardin : la fontaine

Esprit Jardin (garden spirit): colourful fountain made from recycled materials, two living statues, two gardeners and a photographer, in front of Saint-Louis cathedral. Most of you missed yesterday's post because my feed wasn't updating. I hope this time it will and thanks to those who did visit!

Esprit Jardin : fontaine colorée fabriquée à partir de matériaux recyclés, deux statues vivantes, deux jardiniers et une photographe devant la cathédrale Saint-Louis ! La plupart d'entre vous ont raté le billet d'hier puisque mon flux ne fonctionnait plus. J'espère que ce problème est résolu !

I love this and I did see it, but for just for a minute and then I was dropped off and when I finally got back to your blog, it was a different photo????? Hope all is well now! An amazing capture, Ciel!!

A very interesting mix of old and new.

Interesting fountain.

Bob Crowe said...

That is delightfully bizarre. There is something Pythonesque about it.

Un ensemble de jardin comme on en voit peut!

I had no problem with your blog yesterday. That's a good thing, right? :)

I love the living statues! Can't imagine why anyone would want to do that - it looks very difficult - but I'm glad they do! Nice to see "they" used recycled materials for the fountain, too!

Interesting idea for a fountain. Are the 'statues' part of the display, or did they just set up for a few hours?

Pretty blue fountain. What's it made of? Living statutes always make me a little uneasy, don't know why, but they do.

I love capturing another photographer in my shots, super pic of the fountain Ciel.I have to say I find the human statues a little disconcerting, especially if they reach out just as you're passing :)

I admire people who can be living statues. Amazing.
