Photographer's Note

In Nantes when the weather is warm (as it was the case this afternoon) and we need to refresh, we go to the former site of Nantes shipyards, we stand front of our big elemphant and we wait until he waters us !

I took this picture this afternoon on the road of the big elephant from former shipyards to the new Carrousel des Mondes Marins (i.e. "carousel of sea worlds") that was inaugurated last 15th july. This carousel exposes machines inspired by real or imaginary sea worlds (a squid, a hermit crab, a dragon of seas, ...) and the visitor can manipulat them.

I also made a few videos with my camera. If you want to sea and most of all hear the elephant, you can watch them on Youtube there and there. Take care, you may be scared by the terrific noise of the elephant ... Enjoy !
