A water fountain in London

By ColleenA
Good morning....
Something completely different from me today
..... A water fountain near The Thames today.

Yesterday I was looking for something on my hard drive and discovered these forgotten images.
They were captured in July during my trip to London. I was out with fellow epz'rs Lillian, Moira and Dave. We had walked along the Thames and into Brewery Square to have a rest in the shade. I just loved this fountain of the ladies.
Have a nice Saturday....we have a hot sunny day in Cape Town

Well shot, there is something like this near tower bridge, but its very hard to capture its essence in one shot, so i do like what you have done here.

Sorry to the two Carol's above....had the image up an hour ...37 unique views and 14 votes all men, hence my comment above.....I have never had such bad stats before so obviously some people are offended by a bronze water featureSad......the other versions are of faces.... oh well back to flowers tomorrowGrinGrinGrin

That's a bummer Colleen - I mean that the women aren't voting TongueGrinGrinGrin.
I had forgotten about this little square too, am sure that I also have shots of bare, wet bums.
Anyway, a lovely set of shots and I love the crop of V1, and that water movement captured.
A great set of images, I like v3 the best it's almost as if they are having a chat while standing there in the water. Love the movement of the water in the other images as well.

Hi Colleen, I have recently tried to do something different for a change also but nothing as good as these. Different angles and sometimes we have to look at things differently (I have lots to learn) but I think this set of images is brilliant. You put on what you like. London Life is so funny I saw a guy on a Boris Bike with a big cup of coffee and his Iphone plugs in his ears I so wish I had my camera at the time.

I think these are brill well done.

Not just an absolutely fantastic fountain (and I'm not just saying that 'cos of the utterly perfect bum) but two really great shots you've got in Vs 1 and 2, Colleen, especially V1. Herman is so right about it looking like a painting!

Perfectly captured images, Colleen. V1 is outstanding.
