Photographer's Note

Still on the site of former Dubigeon shipyards in Nantes. Here is the Marine Worlds Carousel seen from one of the slipways the ships were put into water. The Marine Worlds Carousel is the other main attractions of Les Machines de l'île park which includes the Great Elephant you could see on my previous shots. It is a giant carousel with machines representing a manta ray, a giant crab, a squid and other magic animals of submarine world. Visitors can not only see these machines but also manipulate them ! The Marine Worlds Carousel was opened in 2012 and was recenlty awarded as the most original attraction worldwide in Los Angeles. The word painted on the pavement is the right one to describe these Machines de l'île : "surprenantes" ! (it is a pun with the name of the city, Nantes, and the french word "surprenantes", which means "surprising").
