Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Fountains


Fountains

Fountains add some visual relief amongst the steel, concrete and glass of big cities. When they are tropical cities they are an even more welcome sight.

This is a very simple fountain in Southbank in Brisbane. I think it is an older one and in fact it reminds me of the fountain that used to stand outside the South Australian Museum in North Terrace although it is smaller and less elaborate.

In Kuala Lumpur we saw several fountains. The first two were located in the gardens outside the National Mosque. I especially like the lotus shaped one but it really does look much nicer in colour.

The next two photos were taken at KLCC Park which is a lovely landscaped park which surrounds the Petronas Towers and Suria shopping centre. Apparently they do a light show at night but unfortunately we had to leave before dark so we didn’t see it.

In Singapore we saw this fountain outside a grand building known as Chijmes. Formerly a convent and school it is now a function centre with bars and restaurants.

Born in England in 1957 my family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. David passed away in 2015 and I'm here on my own now but I have Cindy the dog and Polly the cat to keep me company. I currently co-write two Wordpress blogswith my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and a "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania.
