Like a bridge under a clear blue sky
After 2 weeks of terrible weather the sun is back and so is the blue sky. I took advantage of both to take a photo of this beautiful sculpture located on the Pont (bridge) d'Iena, right at the bottom of the Eiffel Tower. This bridge was built by Napoleon (well under the reign of!) to celebrate the victory of the Iena battle which took place in Germany (well, Prusse at that time) in 1806. This sculpture was made by Antoine-Augustin Préault a French Sculptor. If you want to see what it looked like in the old days, visit this site.
