Swann Memorial Fountain

Swann Memorial FountainHere is another photo taken by my old Vivitar, during my trip to Philadelphia in 2007.

This is a detail of the elegant, breath-taking Swann Memorial Fountain. Yes, Swann with two n‘s, the swans in the fountain are a play on the name of the man to whom the fountain is dedicated.

This fountain was absolutely majestic, and I only saw it in the winter. The summer photos I have seen of the fountain are enough to make me want to visit Philly again. (Not to mention a couple of good-hearted friends who call Philly home!)

I love the colours in this photo, and the contrast of such wintry weather and such clear blue sky. I hope to see this fountain again, and take more shots of it. It’s an amazing work of art.
