In the rain at Hotel de Sully

I always like to photograph details, but sometimes, details are not enough.

Someone thought she was a mermaid, someone thought she was sweating
when in fact, she was a female sphinx, sitting at Hôtel de Sully in Le Marais, the centre of Paris, and it was just raining.
Details are OK, but it's good to give them a context sometimes

This IS a nice little feature! Nice little sphinx too, I wonder who sculpted her.

I haven't got a clue. Hôtel de Sully is quite a beautiful set of buildings with quite a large interior yard.
