Day 102

Well, after another ballgame, I come home frozen to the bone! Beautiful today, just chilly. 

My son and I drove around a little while waiting for the youngest to get out of a class. Downtown is just gorgeous on a sunny, cool day. An accidental route along the lake found us in front of the Buckingham Fountain. I didn't realize they turned the water on so soon. I think they were still adjusting settings with all the trucks there at the controls, because normally the horses are all spouting water at the same time. 

Some nights they have a light show at the fountain. The different spouts will shoot all sorts of colors. It's really beautiful if you have the time to bring a blanket to just sit and relax.

What a great photo and a beautiful fountain! My photo class instructor suggested once that I should go back to the same place every day for a month and take a photo and see how it improves over time. This would be a great subject for something like that!

Your new header has some beautiful shots in it and really shows where you are in your photo journey. And love the water shot too. I love how you captured the softness of the water yet kept everything so crisp. Nice job.

This is gorgeous. I didn't realize the fountain is on so soon either. It's nice to walk past that spray on a HOT summer day. But now? Nah! LOL! :D

Kara, I have been learning the German word for water fountain recently in Rosetta Stone, and I think one of the pictures they show is of the Buckingham Fountain, but at night. I thought of you when I saw it:)
