Joyeuse Saint Valentin (Weekend Reflections # 229)

Paris, France                      The Stravinsky Fountain

When I took this shot last year, I thought it would be good for Valentine's Day and for Weekend Reflections. I can't believe that  I actually remembered to post it.

"The Stravinsky Fountain is a shallow basin of 580 square meters located in Place Stravinsky, between the Centre Pompidou and the Church of  Saint-Merri. Within the basin are sixteen works of sculpture inspired by Igor Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring, and his other major works. The black mechanical pieces of sculpture are by Jean Tinguely, the colored works by Niki de Saint Phalle."

Happy Valentine's Day!

You found a great big and bold reflection! Am surprised the French like an artist with such an "American way" of displaying symbols.
