What was I photographing on this day in previous years?
Four years ago it was this fantastic sculpture on the bank of the Loire River at Cosne-Cours-sur-Loire in central France.
Entitled ‘Le Marinier Tirant sa Barque’ (The Bargee Pulling his Boat) the sculpture was created by Jean-Jacques Bourgeois based on an idea by Marcel Van Nieuwenberg.
The bridge in the background crosses both the Loire and the border between the Nièvre and Cher départements.
