Naples own


"You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time."
Abraham Lincoln (attributed)16th president of US (1809 - 1865)

Most of you guessed my April Fool's joke in yesterday's post : it was one of the famous fountains from the Gardens of Versailles, France. Bravo Olivier, you were the first to identify it!

It's not like Naples lacks in that department - this fountain from the Third Street South even has some horses - but it does not pack the same punch, does it?

Bravo ;o))), but this fountain is beautiful, it's for a small Versailles

It looks very nice, Isabella, (if not quite as grand as Versailles).
Thanks for your visit.

I arrived too late on your previous post... Spending a day at Versailles last week, I could have had a chance to "win"..., but I'm happy for Olivier!

Well this is a nice fountain too, had we not see yesterday's! But of course it's also the angle you took it - one a close-up, this further away. Anyway very nice and thanks for explanation.

Not quite as grand, eh?
Sorry I only comment today. I visited yesterday but the photo wouldn't open.

Oh, man! I feel so stupid. But...maybe this will inspire me to visit that (yesterday's) statue. It's wonderful.
