Fake tennis game at La Bourse

I already told you about the old stock market building (La Bourse) which is now only used for special events and exhibitions since all transactions are fully electronic. This week they used it for Fashion shows and it's no suprise that a clothes and perfume brand - namely Lacoste - took this opportunity to attract passers by's attention with this interesting fake tennis game involving two transparent "sculptures". The effect was pretty cool, especially towards the end of the day when I took this photo, while the sun was going down  (see two more photos here). It's been a pretty busy week for me on PDP, I deserve some rest!


  1. I saw it last Sunday in front of Metro Saint Paul!

  2. @Renata. Really? Interesting, they must tour the whole town!

  3. Love that long shadow of the tennis player.
    Do you think that when no one is around, they come to life and hit a few balls?

    Speaking of tennis, everyone is very excited over here as Andy Murray is the first British mens finalist at Wimbledon for 74years!
    Only one slight problem in tomorrow's final. It's called Roger Federer. :-(

    Keep calm and have a relaxing weekend zzzzzzz.....

  4. Very cool! I like the shadow too (and I'm rooting for Andy Murray).

  5. This is cool - I liked seeing the other player in your "making of". I must confess that had I been there, I would have been a dorky tourist and taken a picture next to one of them ;). Enjoy your rest, Eric - well deserved!

  6. Very cool! Reminds me of an ice sculpture.
    Enjoy your rest, Eric. :-)
