Bourg, France, taken on November 1, 2010
On a tour of the Château Rousselle in Bourg, near Bordeaux, this beautiful sculpture in the garden caught my eyes. Perhaps she is one of the wine goddesses, guarding over the châteaux in the region for a good harvest.

If you’ve walked through the Parc de la Source in LLN, you may have noticed these four bronze naked ladies. The piece of art by sculptor Alfred Blondel is named “Les quatre saisons”, or “The four seasons”. Can you tell which season each lady represents?

As Mr.DS drove me across the 25 de Abril Bridge (which was an amazingly impressive structure), the statue of Christ the King (yes, inspired by Christ the Redeemer in Rio) stood on the other side as if guarding the city. That would definitely be a place to visit if I travel to Lisbon again.

My friends really do know how to be spontaneous and didn’t hesitate to show off their awesome sense of modelling in the middle of downtown Leipzig. I think they’re pretty good compared to the statues above them, which Googles tells me are named “Unzeitgemäße Zeitgenossen”. The only thing that could add perfection to our models would be if they had the same geometrical shapes to stand upon. Next time we’ll be better prepared!

At Place de la Bourse in Bordeaux, a beautiful fountain glows in the center, accompanied by the Pont du Pierre as a backdrop. Bordeaux, you are as elegant as always.
