Today’s challenge is graceful. I found this statue on the seafront at Juan les Pins on the French Riviera so graceful, I thought it would have to be today’s picture.

About the statue

La Baigneuse, statue by Alphonse Grebel: Installed in 1940, the statue symbolises the beautiful life in Juan les Pins. Grebel also has other statues in the area ‘L’hymne au soleil’ at nearby Antibes les Pins beside Parc Exflora, and a sculpture of Andrè Capron in Cannes.
