Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Water

DSC_0100Cee’s challenge for the week is water, here.

Oh I love water and gardens. Where do you think this is leading to. Fountains!

One of the highlights of my vacation to New York is meeting in person Dinna. I met Dinna through her blog, Pinay New Yorker, many years ago. And she’s now in WP too, she just moved here recently and am so excited because it is much easier to follow her blog now.

I will write another blog about this very special person, but the reason I mentioned her is because when we planned to meet, we decided to meet at Bryant Park. She’s a great photographer and I’ve seen her picture of the fountain there with the water frozen. I tell you that was a breathtaking picture because most fountains are almost all shut down before Winter comes. So the effect of the frozen water was so dramatic, frozen in time so to speak – literally and figuratively.

I wish that was the case when we met but the water was circulating strongly when I saw it. That day was not cold enough but still so pretty. I loved that gurgling sound of the fountain and the movement of the water as they fall, mesmerizing, hypnotic. If it wasn’t that chilly that morning I could have sat right there by the fountain all day.

I know when I go back to New York, I would like to take more pictures of this fountain. And maybe that’s where I will wait for my friend Dinna again.

    I would hope so. I am so attracted to that fountain maybe because unlike most fountains which are meant to be admired and looked at from a distance while this one, people can sit by the base and be part of a happy scene.

    beautiful! it’s very unusual for me to see a live fountain during winter. i guess because most if not all fountains here in chicago are closed during the cold season.

    Here in the Midwest that is part of Fall cleanup in the garden, shutdown the fountain. I guess it is true that NY is not as cold as Chicago except when you are in line outside in the elements and that is for so many things and so you are exposed but in December they still have flowers in the ground or was that only in Park Avenue?
