Fountains of Pol Bury -- Reflection


This fountain and the moving silver balls make for interesting reflections in the Gallery d'Orléans, in the Jardin du Palais Royal shown previously here.

I originally didn't like these balls when I first discovered them, but they've kind of grown on me! :)

Shell Sherree said...

I shall sit here and reflect on life for a while, Genie.

I can't believe that I haven't been there yet! Will have to go in december. Nice job of the reflections without getting you in it too!

shari @ little blue deer said...

That is so, so cool Genie! I love!

M said...

I think what I liked the best was slowly realizing that some of them moved! Love the way your photo captures the jardin in the balls themselves.

Holly, you will be fascinated by the engineering of this fountain!

Kate said...

I especially like the reflections on the right.

Virginia said...

Oh you know I"m grinning frm ear to ear! One of my favorite photos is of Davis and Eva and their friends walking around the edge of this fountain in a line!

Gennie, this is another terrific shot of the fountain!
Do you remember I mentioned Anish Kapoor when I saw the previous silver balls photo? Well, my contribution to James' Weekend Reflections is one of his works I spotted in London! We both have silvery reflections today! :-)

Alexa said...

Once again, I'm with Bibi. Maybe I wanted the Palais Royal to always look as it did when I first fell in love with it. It's pretty cool the way you managed to capture these reflections more or less "anonymously."

It looks like giant set of boules - very French.

I want to clean them up! To prepare my canvas for
those wonderful reflections...

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Bibi -- I really wished I had brought some window cleaner to polish them up a bit!

Shell -- It is nice to take time to reflect, n'est-ce pas?

Gerald -- Merci!

Picturit -- Merci aussi

Holly -- We will definitely be there en decembre! Oh, and there was just a weensie reflection of the photographer

Shari -- These would go great with some of your fabulous designs!

M -- I am easily entertained and love this fountain, wondering about what makes it work.

Kate -- Merci

Virginia -- I wish I had been there to join the march as well!

JM -- Great minds think alike! I am off to comment on your reflection -- love that artist.

Alexa -- Ah, yes I knew that you would discern the photographer sitting on the ground -- quite the detective you are!

Jenny -- They do look like boules!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Margaret -- I am with you -- where is the Windex?

Gine said...

Quel sujet ! Magnifique cliché, très réussi !

Loree said...

How very interesting.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Sylvia -- Merci et bon weekend a vous.

Sooz -- I can't wait to see your photos and hear about your adventures with your daughter!

Gine and Loree -- Merci beaucoup.

'Tsuki said...

This is a great subject of reflection (thanks for stopping the mouth-watering reflection of pastry : I was taking weight by just looking at them ;D )... I like this kind of modern art : it always give a very unique point of view on a city...

Greyscale Territory said...

These moving balls create such a wonderful set of mobile reflections! Love this photo!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

'Tsuki -- Oh, but I have more! (hehe) I love this "art in motion" also.

Greyscale -- Yes, and that makes it hard to stay out of the reflections!

jeannette said...

Went to your original post, because I was curious where this sculpture stood - very ingenious and artful -a fountain! Have to visit that next time I come to Paris

Paris Paul said...

I will NOT make a pun on "balls". I've promised myself...must resist, must resist, must resist

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Jeannette -- Glad that you took a look back and there is much to see in this one area.

Paul -- I wondered if you would show up and comment.... You did not disappoint. hehehe

Cildemer said...

Great reflections! Next time I come to Paris I want to see that fountain;o)
Thanks for sharing*
***Have a happy weekend***
