Simple pleasure 2


I read in Kansas DP that Kansas ranked second in the world for number of fountains after Rome, Italy. Well, we are definitely not in any ranking cause we have only 2-3 (what I've seen) fountains around the town. I think that's why people appreciate them a lot more. Ever since they were switched on last weekend (for spring & summer only) the benches surrounding the fountains are always occupied ..yes, its relaxing just listening to the sound of water flow...

Nice shot - ours are often switched off for spring and summer (water shortages)

Bob: really? Interesting ..i always thought they switch it off first 'cos its cold and to save electricity during Autumn/Summer :o

Nicola said...

Great photo! Looking at it is also very relaxing!

Kala said...

closeup photos are very tricky to do - nice job catching the falling drops!

Sublime.

our fountains are running winter and summer - our winters are not that bad. Low night tempratures, but the day time is usually sunny and mild

Nice photo, i hear the sound of drops here!
Like Bob in Barcelona here some fountains are switched off. Last two years were very dry with small periods of rain so this summer i'm sure would be dry, except the beach of course!

I think I like this photo better in colour. My only suggestion here would be to try to brighten up the shadow area in the bottom left.
