Three Coins In A Fountain


This fountain lives in our patio. Oh, no fair! I'm not showing the whole thing!



...well, I'm not. That way you can enjoy the beautiful curves and lines and graceful shadows that it has to offer. There must be some philosophical saying where the parts of something are more important than the sum of the parts? I think this holds true here.

Everything that we see is a shadow cast by that which we do not see." (Martin Luther King) 

Every week, a group of us from around the world post our shadow shots over at Hey Harriet. Entertain your muse and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted! You can view all of my 2010 Shadow Shot Sunday images on my Flickr account. Click here to view them.

Love your fountain shadow shot for the day, Paula! I do hope your weekend is off to a great start! Enjoy!

The aesthetic grace of stylish arcs does not meant that we need to see the entire fountain to appreciate these lovely details. And although we don't consider shadows as an artistic medium, the shadows could have been dawn in charcoal. It is amazing the art we can find in our abodes and yards. Fine artistry!

Now you've got us singing Paula! Love the fountain shots....sometimes the parts of the picture are more impressive than the picture of the whole! Love it - a refreshing picture for a hot day like today!

Lovely soft curves and shadows, combined with the water. Nice captures.

Seeing only part of an object can be intriguing. Less really is more!


Have a fun week seeking shadows. ;-)

It's so true, Paula: Showing facets of the whole is very effective. Makes us think about what the entire fountain would look like.

Loved these softly curved stones. Could almost hear water trickling over them... I give these fountains the gender of female because they are not phallic geysers!! Amy

I'm gonna come out there and see it for myself!
They are very graceful curves on each shot. I love the subtle sounds the fountains make, great background noise.

Peace

Yes, quite often it's in the small details. I'd like to see the whole fountain for comparison. Nicely captured.

I'm looking for the coins--the coins!

I’M YOUR SHADOW

Hello, there, I’m your shadow,
I tag after you;
Whatever you are doing,
That is what I do.

If you should fling a football
Forty yards or more,
I’ll be right beside you,
Evening the score.

If you should flick a booger
From your stuffy nose,
I will surely do the same—
Watch how far it goes!

So, friend, be very careful
What you say and do—
Whatever you are doing,
I’ll do just as you!
