Photographer's Note

What, did you believe this was going to suggest anything more than an acknowledgment of the mid-week point, Wednesday…which is commonly referred to as “hump day??” I know a recent trend might have you thinking otherwise, but it’s merely a coincidence…juuuuust a coincidence! Now, as I’ve mentioned before to a few others, get your minds out of the gutter…mine needs to float by! ;)

There’s an amusing advertisement that runs here in the U.S. for an insurance company which plays into the title, take a look if you have an extra 30 seconds: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWBhP0EQ1lA

It’s virtually impossible not to get swept up in the glory of the Eiffel Tower, but there are many interesting and often overlooked items in the surrounding area of its location…this being one of them. Placed at the foot of the fountains in the Trocadero gardens, which are just across the river from the tower, this piece of public artwork from 1937 is known as “La Joie de Vivre” (The Joy of Life). The artists (Léon-Ernest Drivier) depiction would most certainly support that notion, fun and frolic…and apparently without regard for clothing!? Take from it what you will, just don’t blame me. hehe



Thanks for stopping by.
