There is really only one obligatory photograph that must be taken when you visit Bordeaux, the one on the covers of all the tourism guides. It's of the Place de la Bourse taken from the other side of the reflection pool. They have a large, maybe 20m x 40m reflection pool between the Place de la Bourse and the river that is maintained with about a centimeter of water. It's pure high-grade photographer catnip.
First the obligatory shot of the Place de la Bourse.
Personally, I found the people who walk through the pool to be much more interesting subjects.
A tourist just got the obligatory shot. I took this from our tour bus.

If only his face had been there when this happened...
I had no idea that every so often things got all misty.
