Photographer's Note

The place de la republique is a square in Paris, located on the border between the 3rd, 10th and 11th arrondissements. At the square center stands a 9.4 m bronze statute of Marianne holding aloft an olive branch in her right hand. The statue sits atop a monument which is 23 m high. Marianne is surrounded with 3 statues personifying liberty, equality, and fraternity. Also at the base is a lion guarding a depiction of a ballot box. 5 subway lines cross at republique square, making of the station an important node of Paris transportation network. It's a bustling and popular place, crowds rallied on the place following the november 2015 Paris attacks to cry for the victims, demonstrate, light a candle.

As a reminder : on november 13th, 2015, a series of coordinated terrorist attacks occurred in Paris and its northern suburb, Saint-Denis. About 130 people were killed, 368 were injured, 8099 severely injured. 7 of the attackers also died. Critiques are welcome. Source : wiki
