Interesting piece. The water looks like it needs some help.

I really like the first one. But being a lover of mythology and fantasy, it's not surprising. :)

Sharon said...

Beautiful and classic! I'm glad you included the link to the broader photo. It certainly gives you a perspective of this wonderful spot.

Nice reflection shot! I love places like this. Your prior shot and information is very interesting - that was a lot of destruction at one time!

Great statues. I love the first one--reflections and all. Thanks for the link. MB

I like both these statues, the first has the plus of the reflection and both are in that beautiful park I remember so fondly.

Great reflections there in the first photo. The rooftop in the background balances it quite nicely.
Cheers.
