Photographer's Note

This is the Fontaine Du Soleil (Fountain of the Sun), Place Massena, Nice, Alpes Maritimes, Provence, Cote D'Azure in southern France.

An amusing story of the Apollo statue in Nice can be seen here:

This is a link to the infamous Apollo Story

It was removed in the 1970's because of the 4 horses on his head, (similar to the ad for the then current Renault 4CV car) and the size of his lower appendages offended public sensibilities! The Apollo statue was finally put back in the fountain in 2011. In 2013 when i took this there was no water in the fountain.
