This week’s challenge from A Word in Your Ear is about the word FACE. I’m sure there will be many wonderful people portraits this week, but my choice is for statues – for one thing they don’t move and you can’t cause offence by sticking a camera in their face 🙂
KRINAIAI, the Naiads of fountains.
THE NAIADES were fresh-water Nymphs who inhabited the rivers, streams, lakes, marshes, fountains and springs of the earth. They were immortal, minor divinities who were invited to attend the assemblies of the gods on Mount Olympos.
These photos are from the Jardin Anglais, (The English Garden) which boasts a superb position on Lake Geneva. Since 1854 it has been a meeting point for locals and tourists alike, its grand established trees, stately fountains and sculptures of the city’s noteworthy artists evoking the elegance of an unhurried age.
