The big wheel symbol is a typical fixture of our cities since it has been invented by George Ferris in 1893. This one can be found every winter in Place Massena, in Nice. While usually it is surrounded by some seasonal decorations, here I’ve managed to shoot it just before the annual carnival season, when tribunes are being placed for who desires to watch the ritual passage of decorated carriages.
Perhaps a more typical image of the wheel can be enjoyed from the recently opened park named “La Promenade de Paillon”, established over the covered delta of the Paillon river, creating a green open space between the Old Nice and the rest of the town.
