ABC WEDNESDAY: F is for . . . .


"A fountain (from the Latin "fons" or "fontis", a source or spring) is a piece of architecture which pours water into a basin or jets it into the air either to supply drinking water or for decorative or dramatic effect." ~ Wikipedia

I love fountains and enjoy taking photos of them where ever I see them.  :)

  1. I've seen the two Italian ones! Oh how I loved Italy and dream of returning one day. There's nothing like the architecture in Europe, fountains or no fountains!

  4. There is something so mesmerizing about fountains. Love your choices. I've been lucky to have visited many of them.

  5. I love your fountain collection! Every one is so unique and your photos of them are fantastic. Great choice for "F" week!

  6. Wonderful!! I love fountains too. Fountain of Neptune has a special place in my heart - I have a photo of my mom, sister and I sitting in front of it, from our first trip to Italy. A young American girl offered to snap the pic, so we could all three be in the shot. And Trevi of course is delightful! Haven't seen the others (yet) but your photos are lovely.

  7. Hi Everyone thanks so much for your comments . . . .

    Leslie, I love visiting Europe too because of their history and architecture. It's not something I can see where I love now and it is a real treat for me to see such beauty.

    Hi Rose, thanks so much for liking my fountain photos.

    Hi Roger, I love fountains, water falls and the ocean. We have a lot i common. :)

    Meryl, I agree, they are definitely mesmerizing and I love them. Thanks so much for liking my photos. So cool that you have seen them too.

    Anne, Thanks so much for your comments. Isn't it great how images of places we visitcan stir up such fond memories especially when they are special memories for us. I never get tired of seeing the Trevi fountain. So amazing. I'm glad you like my photos.

    Thanks everyone for your comments. Have a wonderful evening.

  8. I'm another fountain fan. Love your collection. Have to visit the Austria fountain. Made a quick trip through there but not much time. Trevi Fountain holds some wonderful family memories for me. Thanks for reminding me of them this morning! m

  9. Hi Gattina, thanks so much for your comments. I'm glad to hear that you love fountains too. They are soothing and beautiful.

    Hi M, thanks so much for your comments. The fountain fan club is a big group aren't we. And why not, they are beautiful and fun. I love the Trevi Fountain too. I'm glad that my photos stirred up some wonderful family memories for you.

    Have a wonderful evening.
