Very nicely caught Bernard ~~ Gold and blue great colour combination too ~~ Ciao nick
Thank you Nick! There was a photo like that in the local newspaper. I made the photo too! Here we call this virgin “la Bonne Mère” or the Good Mother. She dominates Marseille!
Very nice shot Bernard. I saw this first, then I saw where it is and I am doubly impressed with how sharp and well composed it is. Best regards. -Art
Thank you, -Art! The statue is over 11 meters high. It is seen everywhere in Marseille. You may be aware; you have photos of the south of France, and even the market place in Nîmes in the rain!
Greetings from southern France,
Magnificent picture! With the best regards, Alex
Thank you, Alex, for your visit and kind comment!
Greetings from Marseille,
Wonderful statue of Mary! :)
Hi Marcel! This is a monumental statue of 11.2 m of the Virgin and Child made of copper with gold leaf. This statue is visible from all Marseille and is called by the people of Marseille “la Bonne Mère”! ("The Good Mother"!)
C'est la première fois que je vois la bonne mère, depuis que j'entend parler d'elle.
Dans ses bras on dirais Nicolas petit.
Salutations de Jérôme
Alors là Jérôme, je ne suis pas d’accord avec toi ! Regarde bien, il n’a pas de Rolex ! LOL !
Very good picture. Congratulations.
Thank you Francisco José! This is one of my best photos of the good mother of Marseille. I zoomed out. The statue is more than 11 meters high and it is at the top of the basilica. We see it everywhere in Marseille.
Saludos desde Marsella,
