La Fontaine Stravinsky , fontaine aux automates de jean Tinguely et Niki de Saint-Phalle. 16 sculptures rendent hommage au compositeur Stravinsky.Fontaine mécanique et animée par des jets d'eau quand elle n'est pas gelée !

Une magnifique vue plongeante vraiment insolite, la neige n'a apparemment pas posée de problème aux enfants :)) Belle journée.

Apparemment, certains ont osé marcher sur la glace de la fontaine gelée, intrépides comme ton angle ;)

Si vous avez de la chance à Paris, ça va revenir !!! préparez-vous, pelles à neige dans l'auto, bonnes couvertures pour les files d'attente, thermo de café, etc...

Göran from Skanör, Sweden

Interesting to see pictures of Paris in snow. I have only see it in summer (as a tourist) and it looks a bit different in your pictures. The perspective is very good an the diversity of the activities make me think of Brueghel.

A wonderful aerial view and so great to see people enjoying themselves in the snow. Thanks for the background info on the fountain as well.

kiwisa from North Shore, New Zealand

Interesting information about this sculpture fountain, which I visited in January. I can't believe there are footprints in it, which means it must be frozen. Great shot.

14 Dec 2010 6:44pm

Wiepkjen from Utrecht, Netherlands

Very interesting shot. Love all those little footsteps between the sculptures. Would be nice though if some time in the future you could show us some pictures of the fountains in working order.

14 Dec 2010 6:59pm

@Wiepkjen: Thank you very much Wiepkjen. I have photos of the last years of certain sculptures automatons but I shall make it of the fountain !

Interesting footprints on the fountain!
What are those white lines?
Really interesting.

14 Dec 2010 8:34pm

@London Caller: Thank you London Caller. I suppose that it is the machinery for sculptures walk and water of fountains.

Earnest from Oklahoma, United States

Great photo and very interesting too.

flyingwind风飞扬 from Bridgetown, Barbados

Nice perspective! Which floor are you on?! Looks very high! So children have to play at home instead of at this playground. But playing with snow is another nice outdoor activity!

15 Dec 2010 12:58am

@flyingwind风飞扬: Thank you flyingwind ! I think I was in the 6th floor there .

Michael Rawluk from Williams Lake, BC, Canada

Very cool to get that shot from on high.

Un angle original . Pour ma part j'aurais choisi le tout n&b mais ça n'engage que moi !!

16 Dec 2010 12:11pm

@Véronique: Merci Véronique . Oui ,j'y ai pensé mais j'aime bien que juste les sculptures soient en couleur et puis j'aime que la lumière sur la gauche avec l'arbre semble appartenir à une autre atmosphère !
