Bronze matador statue in front of the arena in Nîmes

I don’t generally follow the news over the weekend. When I scanned the headlines this morning, I discovered that Pamela Anderson had stirred up a bit of controversy late last week in France, at least enough to merit an article in a regional newspaper. She had posted a photo of herself on social media, posing under the bronze statue of a matador in front of the Arènes in Nîmes, France. Apparently it was part of an anti-corrida campaign that ties in with her long-running animal activism.

It occurred to me I might have a photo of the same statue that I hadn’t yet posted on this blog. It looks like I was right.

It was a beautiful, clear afternoon January 2015 when I took this photo. Pamela Anderson was nowhere in sight.
