Water Works

I've passed by this water feature countless times, but never photographed it. It's at City Hall, with the horizontal lines of the main courthouse and the modern wing of City Hall as backdrops to the fountain. I stopped by each day on a weekend in September for an event that was taking place here.


The event in question is called the Army Run, which I'll show more of over the next two posts. For now, I leave off with an M777 towed Howitzer and a military transport truck.

  7. That first shot is especially striking...the way you composed it with all those horizontal lines, including the buildings in the background.

  16. @Denise: it's quite an event. It brings out thousands of participants, all for a good cause. Two good causes, actually.

    @Sharon: that it is.

    @Eileen: thank you!

    @Catalyst: oh, those ones are huge!

    @RedPat: the modern wing is so different from the Heritage Building wing, which from here is hidden away behind the courthouse.

    @Gunn: thanks!

  18. I must say I like the water feature than the howitzer. I can almost hear it splashing in your very nice shots.

  19. I passed a fountain yesterday but couldn't figure out a good way to capture it. They add so much to an urban setting.
