15: decoration - the auroran sunset

Here at abelard.org, we take a lot of photographs. Many of them are pretty or interesting. This is the fifteenth in a regular “photograph with little or no explanation or comment” feature.

The French like to decorate things. Here follows three examples. First a cooling tower for a nuclear power station, painted with a picture of a child at play:

Second is a water tower with a resting girl nestled against a setting sky:

The French also sometimes decorate their flowers:
