Quality thread. Thanks for this. Love the sea-turtle shot one page one, and the cat on the railing. What's the deal with the car going off the parking garage? Public art, or were you just there at the right time to catch an accident?

Thanks again...

Parking garage, Cours Victor Hugo, Bordeaux. This is an architectural detail that appears on the Cours Victor Hugo in Bordeaux's old city. In English this is described as a trick on the eye. In French it is called a trompe l'oeil which is the more universally understood term for this excercise.

Lilia sola regunt lunam, undas, castra, leonem :
Les lis seuls règnent sur la lune, les flots, le château et le lion.
Only the lily reign on the Moon, the waves, the fortress and the lion referred clearly to the domination of the King of France on Bordeaux, after the English occupation period.
