Fountain

DSCN6081-1

The fountain in the square in front of our Town Hall is from 1941 by artist Nils Sjögren.
The reliefs surrounding the fountain show working life through the history of the town.

I see now that besides the fountain, I caught something in the picture above which I was not aware of at the time. Do you see it? Don’t worry. It’s not a man about to jump off the roof. It’s just another statue… I’ll get back to that one another day!

DSCN6131-1

Photo taken from the stairs of the Town Hall looking across the square.
This day was also Military Music Day, and all the people are waiting around for a parade.
More pictures of that coming up some other day.

This fountain is quite something. I love the perspective in the first picture, with the fountain big and the building smaller behind it, and the water in front of the red roof. Then it looks so different in the last picture. I had been hoping you would do a post just on the fountain. Wow! You have so much art and culture there that you can't even fit it all into posts fast enough!

DawnTreader's Picture Book

For this blog, I have chosen a template that allows me to show pictures as big as possible . Some of the things you usually find in the sidebar, you will find here at the bottom of the page instead - Blog Archive, Followers etc.







My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 4600.
For basic editing of most photos and collages I use Picasa 3.
Sometimes I also experiment with some more "artistic" effects in Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro.
