City of culture and fountains

Last posting from my wonderful journey to France, with Alex. Aix en Provence was where I spent most of my time, to see places where Alex used to live, and to meet his friends and family. These help me to know him better...

Town of water, town of art... Aix was built and has developed around this dual identity. But the most imposing is without doubt the Rotunda fountain. Its construction in 1860. The three statues: Justice, Agriculture and Fine Arts adorn the fountain and recall the main activities of this town. In effect the fountain was a symbolic mark of the entry to the modern town. Aix has grown now and today the "great Fountain" is at the centre of the town.

Bye France...

@flyingwind风飞扬: I only use the native Nikon Capture NX. I'm not good in photoshop, or any fancy post processing. Something that I seriously need to catch up.
