Sunday Morning: the Fountain


The square facing the Palais de Justice, the law courts which are to the left. During the week this square is packed with people; Sunday was quieter. As I've mentioned before I have a passion for ice cream and my favourite ice cream shop is just behind where I was standing..

tu trouves qu'il n'y avait pas assez d'eau sur la cote d'azur ;o)). une bonne glace devant ce spectacle, cela doit être sympathique

A perfect image for my gloomy day. I love that ice cream shop, but 9I have never seen that fountain as tempetuous before. I like it.

Oh wow. This is a fantastic photo, Angela! This is what I imagine when I hear the phrase 'and time stood still.'

What flavor ice cream did you have? :)

angela said...

Hilda: I like to try a new flavour every time. This time it was Ferrero Rocher flavour. Nice but not the nicest.
Catherine: I have never noticed the name but it's at right angles to the Palais near the shop that sells those Diddl stationary..

An explosion of water, fountains add so much to our public spaces.

I sure would enjoy seeing your favorite ice cream shop!

I love how you caught the splash from the water fountain. I came for Skywatch but stayed to enjoy all your other photos.
