More Snow

Just because it's hard to go wrong with snow pictures... here's a few more.

This first one's from Pont Tilsitt looking back across Vieux-Lyon, Eglise St-Georges. You can see my house in this one--well, Le Professeur's house, anyway. Look just to the right of the steeple of the Eglise. There's a big castle-looking building on the hilltop (actually a former seminary, now a high school) and in front of it is Le Professeur's big yellowish house.

The next one's from the left bank of the Saone, looking toward Eglise St-Georges and Notre-Dame de Fourviere.

In Place Bellecour, Louis XIV the Sun King looks a bit chilly. His horse too.

Finally, two pictures of the Bartholdi fountain in Place des Terreaux, across from City Hall and the Art Museum. I don't get up there too often but there was an exhibit on the Moderns (Picasso, Matisse, Bacon-- mmm, bacon) that I wanted to catch, and on a snowy day with everything iced over, there wasn't much else to do. Unfortunately everyone else in town had the same idea.
