Although Quebec City's city hall (hôtel de ville) was built in 1895-96, it has some more modern decorations in front!

This is interesting; I am at a loss as to the scale of what I am looking at. Clever.

Thank you, kino_pur.

Larry, you could easily hide in one if you had a boost or a ladder ... except that I could just barely see into a smaller, fourth one by the building's entrance, and it had dirt in it. Will these flowerpots bloom later in the season? Alas, I won't be there to find out!

This one is great fun Marilyn and I wonder if Ali Baba might be hiding in one :) Ciao nick

Great photo, Marilyn! Great! Quite an illusion! You have some great illusions in your gallery.

... there must be a new tag in there somewhere.
