A very cold morning for the Stravinsky Fountain in Paris

The Stravinsky Fountain - Niki de Saint Phalle / Jean Tinguely - 1983
Paris, 2014, December 29th. A very cold morning (less than 0°Celsius). See above and below the frozen Stravinsky fountain near the Pompidou center.


The Art pieces still rotate on themselves and continue to throw water. This gives a surprising effect.

If you are in Paris, don't forget to go and see the art of Niki de Saint Phalle in the Grand Palais (until 2015, February 2nd) => http://www.grandpalais.fr/en/event/niki-de-saint-phalle

She did a fantastic and very original work. Amazing exhibition.
See some of her creations:






Go there, it's worth it (book on the Internet before!).

This Sunday was a very beautiful day in Paris, really sunny and warm, not so usual in October.
With such a blue sky, the Sacré-Coeur in Montmartre was clearly visible from the Left Bank near the bridge of "La Concorde":


The FIAC is here! Enjoy!
