The Fountains of Youth have been here all along!
BEAUTIFUL SAVANNAH, GEORGIA. YES THIS IS A REAL FOUNTAIN IN A REAL PLACE.
I love them. Fountains. The dancing water and the mist that splashes when you get close. Even the sound of the trickling water calms your mind and slows you down. I have been shooting pictures for a while and realized there is something that draws me in. I have always had a dream of having a huge cement fountain sculpted in my yard that is actually a hot tub on the bottom row. Wouldn't that be incredible? A work of art that is also an experience at the same time. If only I could build it - let alone have a place to put it. (That's what daydreams are for however)... Big ideas that are beyond the current budget.
Anyways, I thought I'd share some of the photo's. There is a special series of fountain pictures that I started on my travels. When nobody is looking we (whoever I am with) throws of thier shoes, hikes up thier dresses and slips into the cool water for a quick photo. Always a laugh and always a good memory......... but not always allowed! So you must be quick. And never ever ask permission. Someone will always say.... "Oh, no you mustn't do that". And that would spoil all the fun.
In beautiful St. Augustine. (This could be the hot tub fountain) It would totally work. It just needs higher sides right?
(This was in the casino lobby and - the security guard came running over and said "hey.... you can't do that")
Too late. We did.
Dancing water in Savannah, Georgia. Little kids stripped down in the warm weather and danced with the water. Wet shirts, wet hair, nobody cares. Oh to be so carefree. Then we grow up.
