"Place, with a trace of humanity" Photography/Photo of the Day/Pittsburgh

The Carnegie Museum Fountains in Winter

Shooting a color photo that looks black and white is fun.  These pods looked chilly and the sounds of the water splashing gave a shiver right under my wool coat and scarf.

Ever watch kids play in fountains
in the summer months?
Not the day I shot this photograph/
and I doubt kids play in these
or if they do, I’m sure not for long.
Vigilant museum guards would
come out and put a halt to any splashing

February 1st after lunch on Professional Development Day.

    Our grandkids love the little water spray fountains in front of The Cheesecake Factory at The South Side Works! In the summer, of course!

    This is a beautiful and rather abstract photograph.

    I love the sight of the water fountain in winter. They look like they are dancing next to the snow pods.
