Still so much color! The couple looks like they are running from flames.

Le fard leur va excessivement bien au teint!

The sculpture appears to be marvelling at the colours, and rightly so!

il faut en profiter de cet été de la Saint Martin... bientôt les statues seront dans leurs "robes" d'hiver

I looks like the statue is waving goodbye to the leaves. You live in such a stunningly beautiful part of the world.

Ino looks particularly coy in these shots Ciel :) How amazing that the original is so old, precious to still have these treasures crafted all those years ago, thank goodness it's so well protected.

I think if I were there I'd be out every day walking in the parks and through the city just to soak up all that color.
