The visit of the Géant in Le Havre

My first meeting with the Géant (Giant in French) was when I was 6 years old. He fall from the sky and was sleeping at the end of the street where I was living. I will always remember when I was watching him walking in the street from my flat and he looked back at me. His story became part of our city, his nightmares were the main topic of our conversation and he broke our heart when he brutally left. Eventually, he came back and another story started. Then there were many stories carried by other giants and also magnificent animals like elephants or giraffes. All of this would not be possible without the genius and the imagination of Le Royal de Luxe and his creator Jean-Luc Courcoult.

When I heard the Géant was coming back to Le Havre for its 500 anniversary I could not miss that event. Here are some pictures I manage to take from this weekend:
