This is a Fountain

That's the end of the road trip series. I have more photos that made the cut, but they are similar to the ones that I have already posted here. I will probably share a few more with you throughout the next month.

This is a fountain that I found while on a recent photo hunt in Burnaby. I spent several minutes exploring it from a few different vantage points. I also enjoyed exploring the garden that you can see in the background. In fact, my favourite part of this image is the blurred garden in the background. I wish that I had taken a photo of just the garden completely out of focus, just as it appears in this photograph. I like the blend of purple and green.

It seems as though I regularly look at my work and regret the fact that I did not approach a subject in a different way. I should make note of my afterthoughts so that I can go back and take the picture again in the way that I wish I had in the first place. Perhaps I will start a little note book, with a list of photos I would like to take. Good idea, but let's face it, I'll never get around to writing that sort of thing down.

Hi Timmybomb,

Very nice "abstract"! Even though you said this was a fountain, I had a hard time getting there.

I wonder if a portrait format would allow more emphasis on the water & "garden"?

Another potential shot for the book.

I like it as an abstract picture, with the beautiful blurred colours. Without your description I wouldn't have known it was a fountain.

I love those blurred colors, too!!

Actually, a small notebook that you could keep with you all the time would be a great idea! I think it would help you to remember.

THis is a really cool abstract you have captured the water perfectly and the colours in the background balance out the foreground concrete very well.
