Transient Statuary on Alexandre III Bridge
Today’s Friday challenge is “transient”. Last Sunday I had decided to walk along the river bank thanks to a meet-up discovery tour of the bridges of Paris. Fine, not really new to me but as you know, I’m grounded here, so I’d rather make the most of it and grow a stiff upper lip. Nonetheless, as I was walking past Alexandre III for the hundredth time, I noticed something that I had never spotted before. People on the bridge were looking like statues, only transient ones, and as the Sun and the heat were so intense (above 100° Fahrenheit and upper 30s celsius) colour photography was an absolute no no. So at the end of the day, I was pretty happy with the result. And here I got my transient statuary on the Alexandre III bridge, and these weren’t made at the turn of the twentieth century.
