Retour sur les derniers travaux

Latone fountain Versailles restoration May 2015
There have been dramatic changes since March (see yesterday's post) at Latona fountain in the palace gardens... These photos were taken at the very beginning of May by VDP's friend Atelier Choco Turquoise and there's more to come tomorrow!

Il y a eu des changements énormes depuis mars (voir le billet d'hier) au bassin de Latone... Ces photos ont été prises tout début mai par l'Atelier Choco Turquoise, la suite demain !

What a fantastic restoration this will be! You promise to take lots of photos of it when done, right?

This is going to be so gorgeous! I can hardly wait, Ciel!

I love seeing all that gold glistening in the sunlight!

I am happy to see that the state is preserving its beauty. Infrastructure here is, in general, going to hell because conservative governments won't appropriate the money to maintain it. We have bridges in our area with nets underneath them to catch falling bits of concrete.

@ Bob: this actually isn't paid for by the taxpayer. It's all down to sponsoring. You'll find the information in the link I provided yesterday.

I always like this kind of photos: this is a very interesting and peculiar 'construction site'!

The golden sculptures will look nicer after a winter or two. Looking forward to seeing the fountain when it's all done.
