This paddling pool is located in a play area near the community hall in Saint Léonard de Noblat. I photographed it first in the winter and then in the following summer when I realised it had fallen out of use after the council had built a new outdoor swimming pool complex. The paddling pool has become a collecting tank for brown pine needles that are submerged under water, on the surface of which you can make out the reflection of the leafy trees surrounding the area.
