Temporary twins

I've decided to twin Bordeaux with York, at least for a little while. This is the quayside water-mirror on on the mighty Garonne. Parents have great fun taking photos of their offspring here. 

Every now and then the water drains away into the slits and a fine mist  emanates from the metal discs set into the paving. It's amusing to watch the younger children as puzzlement at the disappearance of the water gives way to wide-eyed wonder at the arrival of the mist.


  1. What a neat shot! I really like the wide shot, so you can see the kids running and the reflections. That area looks quite large.

  2. A fun surprise for the kids and a fine reflection photo.

  3. Why don't we Brits have the imagination to put cool stuff like that in some of our towns? Nice pic!
