L'Harmonie dans une flaque d'eau (Weekend Reflections # 203)

Paris, France    English title: (Harmony in a puddle of water)

This is a reflection of the top corner of a very famous building in Paris. If you've been to Paris you have probably seen this building. Look closely at this (upside-down) reflection and see if you know the building. When you figure out the name of the building and the name of the golden statue the title of this post will make sense. :-)

 I'll post the names of the building and statue next week.

I hope have a great weekend!!!

Please only link posts that have a photo or photos that contain a visual reflection.  Reflections can be on water,glass,metal or anything else as long as we can see the reflection.If needed, click the link near the top right corner for instructions. Now, lets have some fun with Weekend Reflections!

C'est l'Op.de Paris, la statue de gauche quand on regarde de face.
Je ne mets pas toute la réponse pour que tout le monde puisse jouer.
Incroyable ce qu'on trouve dans les flaques!! :o)

I do know the building - it's those masks around the edge that always captivated me! Saw the Russian Ballet there once - near Christmas. A once in a lifetime wonderful experience! I'm in awe of the clarity of the reflection and the gentle shimmer of the 'bokeh' on the sidewalk. A new fave!

very interesting, but you are a scamp! I'm unfamiliar with both the building and the statue because I've not traveled there.
thanks again for hosting one of top favorite memes!

Le titre est si bien trouvé, James... Ca me rappelle une vieille expression populaire française, qui parle de poésie dans le caniveau...

Superbe photo cette semaine encore !

Cool shot, James! I got it right away—used to work a few short blocks from this beautiful building and saw it every day.

The golden lady is lovely, but the other faces are downright scary.
