Nice photo! You should get a star filter for your camera.

Lovely photo, Marie. I love fountains. We had them all over New Orleans when I was a kid. Unfortunately, drunken vandals used to like to put soap powder in them. Can't blame today's kids on it, though. That was my generation. It's not harmless fun. Causes considerable damage to the pumps and they were all shut down for a long time. They are just now starting to come back.

Thank you, spfldnet. I'll put that on the list.

Rob, I've actually been all the way in that fountain. It was a long time ago and I wasn't even drunk.
