This “Garden of Giants” in Lille, France, is a small and quiet place. “The creation of the garden was entrusted to landscape gardeners from the Mutabilis workshop and to the architect Duncan Lewis”.
In the North of France, Giants ( https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/G%C3%A9ants_du_Nord ) are like figures from the Middle Age traditions. Today they are showed in carnivals…
Thus, the park is full of symbols, tall unattainable chairs, silhouettes, mysterious places and paths, old plants…
I took these pictures in 2010 :
Mary in a box?
Two siblings mocking the third one
Animals watching shoes
Wanna buy our chair?
Colorful and elegant
Bike on this and know what shaky is
A bench to cigarette on
Just in case of clouds leaks
This bird comes from San Francisco (I asked)
Robby on a flying saucer, obviously. A golden one.
Every year, it’s La Braderie, a huge flea market in the city of Lille, in the North of France.
It’s a pretty big event here, happening during two days, people sell their old stuff, buy, wander, and… eat mussels with French fries.
It’s been canceled last year because of these few guys in trucks who killed people driving in crowds. This year is security enhanced (some concrete blocks in streets, etc) and people are happy to find their braderie back.
On the last picture, you’ll see our French way to use the concrete “blocks”. Have a beer?
I like it, just to feel the happy mood of my city, the many different people coming from whole Europa, and to buy things, of course (well, mainly books).
I took pictures for you, my readers. It’s nothing important, just a way to feel the… French energy of it. Have fun!
