Photographer's Note

The Pont Alexandre III crosses the Seine at the foot of the Avenue Winston Churchill pointing directly at Les Invalides the home of Napoleon's mortal remains. The bridge was, I understand, named for the Tsar of that name and opened by his son Nicholas II to access the then new Grand Palais and the Exhibition it contained.

I encountered a small frisson when examining this picture on my computer! Just before the far support I could discern what looked like a pair of legs dangling over space! Had I caught unkowingly on camera some poor unfortunate about to jump!? Thankfully - No! It seems to be some putti-like decorations hold symbolic batons/torches that I had not noticed whilst on site.
A little correction of perspective and levels in PSE3.
