Fountains - A Photo Gallery of Different Fountains
Fountains are beautiful and fun to look at very often, but also can be very functional as well. Each fountain is really a work of art that has been created. Sometimes we don't even get to see who made the fountain or contributed to it in any way, but its a joy to enjoy them all the same.
Here I share with you some different fountains that I have come across. Thinking back, there are more that I never thought to get a photo of that were really neat. Just another reminder for me to keep my camera with me more often.
Below you will see a collection from classical, classy to whimsical and plain fun. I love them all, and have already told myself to be careful of saying several are my "favorite."
Photos of Fountains
Photo 1 - This fountain is just fantastic, in my opinion. I truly love it, as it has these 3 large fish with tails in the air and curving around. I couldn't believe what a cool fountain I had come across the first time I saw it. I love anything having to do with water, so a fountain with fish included in it really great, in my opinion.
Photo 2 - This is a very large fountain as you are entering the Missouri Botanical Garden. To me, its a typical and fun fountain.
Photo 3 - This fountain is one of my favorites, hands down. There is only a little bit of water coming out of each pitcher on each side of the angel, but it is still a fountain. I love that you can see what appears to be some kind of creatures at the angel's feet. It is a large, really neat fountain.
Photo 4 - In downtown Saint Louis, there is a huge park called Forest Park. This is a very large pond with several fountains within it. Its a really cool fountain, not all that far from the Art Museum there.
Photo 5 - This is a totally different kind of fountain, with water coming up out of the middle of it and flowing all around the edges of it. Its a really sweet little fountain.
Photo 6 - This is a classy fountain, with a curve to match the surrounding rose garden. I thought it was beautiful and simple, but classy.
Photo 7 - This fountain is one of the most curious to me. It seems to be a flock of birds flying, which is really cool. There are two bowls or something on either side. This is one that I would like to find out more about.
Photo 8 - This one is so playful and fun with otters playing in the fountain. I love this idea, its one of the most fun fountains I have ever seen.
Photo 9 - This is a circular fountain also, that has water coming up, seemingly out of the ground. It's very fun for the kids to play in, when its hot in the Summer.
Photo 10 - Another animal fountain that I just love. Its three geese seeming to play in the water. Very fun!
Photo 11 - This fountain is in a super beautiful setting, in my opinion, though its just the shape of a bird bath really. Its much more complex than that, and this may be my very favorite. Its like a courtyard setting, and so beautiful in this area.
Photo 12 - This one is another fun animal one, with two beautiful peacocks. Its a really neat effect.
* I have always liked fountains, but until I saw more over time like these above, I never had any idea how creative they could get. Its so much fun to see how artistic a person can be with a fountain creation.
