The Lion, the Camera and the Magic Roundabout


One of the lions of the Place de la Cathedrale, photographed in front of a merry-go-round placed there for the christmas season.

My that lion has big ears! I really like the contrast between the black lion and the colorful merry-go-round in the first picture!

I like both of these photos, and I think you picked the better of the two for your portal photo--the contrast is very nice, between the lion and the merry-go-round.

Both photos are great, but the 1st one is my favourite! Love it! It reminds me of 'Moulin Rouge', the movie.
