A quick trip away from my Autumn Almanac to see a bit of French bohemianism on the Left Bank. This reminds me of a little French bistro in Montparnasse. It is, in fact, a wonderful little fountain with various fascinating sculpted items around it, in a square just off the south end of Tower Bridge
(a Londres).

Many thanks for looking in, any comments more than welcome.

I'm still laughing at your write up Smile It does make you think more of Paris then London. Love the curvy beautiful body of the sculpture, the corrosion lines of the wetaher and the water running, but most of all the beer bottle floating in the middle of the fountain! Excellent! IB

Oh... that's really beautiful, I love it.. The POV is great. It is just perfect! The background gives her a lot of interesting things to look at..and we look at the beatuiful sculpture thinking what she was interested in... a thought leads to another thought. A wonderful imge, great work, Dave.

I really like this
The only slight let down is that blue pole - but if you had moved to get it out of frame the whole feel of the shot with her looking at the posters and the 'did she put the bottle there?' would have been lost

Hi Dave
Love the tones on the statue, the background posters should be distracting but they are not, nice capture!

it is an interesting spring indeed now is it a beer bottle she is watching?
there is one thing I don't understand at all though? why on earth does it make you think of Paris? there is no traffic jam and no bureaucrats in the picture, no graffity and no riots? no grey alleys and mucky suburbs?
