Daily Photo Theme Day: Blue



The dancer stands on a blue globe of the world, with the Principality shown in gold - of course! Actually it's not a globe of the world but simply depicts the Mediterranean coastline of France and Italy , with Monte Carlo clearly marked - more detail in the photo below. It stands in the centre of Avenue Princesse Grace near to the Grimaldi Forum.

nice choice for the theme day, the globe that the sculpture is holding? is it a small version of the globe he's standing on?

oh wow what a statue and thanks for showing us the statue and not just the globe - magnifique!

alice said...

A little "too much" for me, this statue, but blue, really!

Denton said...

I just looked and I think all your photos are blue. It appears it would be a challenge to take a photo in Monte Carlo and not include blue.

Very unusual and perfect for theme day!

Ioanna said...

Very beautiful sculpture!

Kate said...

I like the fact that the globe is regional. The statue is graceful and looks well against the blue sky.

Ming the Merciless said...

Are the sky always this beautiful? It seems like it is almost always cloudless and blue.

Oh so pretty! Connais-tu l'artiste qui a créé cette sculpture?

Greetings New Yorkais

Neva said...

This is a great shot....how cool is this?

Lynette said...

Lovely--the colors, the shapes, the action captured by the statue. I especially like that she's also holding a globe. Is the star touching Monaco?

R&R in The Netherlands said...

I like the spirit of the statue. Nice choice.

Stefan Jansson said...

Groovy sculpture.

for me it looks like Germany is the center of this globe (well at least europe), because it is marked golden sourrounded by th eu-stars...
