This afternoon I went on an adventure in my hometown. I have a dear friend visiting, and she wanted to do a little sight-seeing, so off we went.
It is so delightful to go out in the community and see the same old sights with a new eye to detail. It was a gift to my friend to explore, but it was also a gift to me, to see with fresh eyes the beauty that is in my little town.
This fountain sits at a traffic circle. I drive around it every week, but today I saw the joy captured in a childhood scene. Children playing on the rocks probably ended their afternoon with a game of King of the Hill. The little boy at the top of the fountain earned his achievement for the day.

Have you ever considered creating an e-book or guest authoring on other websites?
I have a blog based on the same ideas you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my audience would value your work.
If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
nice photo – perfect in B&W – and truly a great way to cap the day, at the top of the hill.
Thanks for liking my post photo challenge-Angular. Is it boy standing on the top of rock? great photography
Yes, it’s a little boy — I actually know the models 🙂
Absolutely love this photo on so many levels. Great choice for this week’s challenge
It’s always fun to share something you know and love with a friend! Thank you for sharing with US! It is a beautiful statue-fountain and you did well with the contrast in your photo.
Thanks! It was tough with a dinky iPhone, but I like it too!
Right now all my photos are taken with an iPhone too! Also, when I began reading your post, having looked at the picture first, I thought it was your friend who was on top of a interesting rock. 🙂
heh… I saw this photo and was, like, something’s familiar about this… Phhftt! I HAVE seen it! In your town!
Ha!!!! Yes, we’ve been on that little rotary (how do you like that use of rotary? we call it a traffic circle!)
what a beautiful fountain to have in a traffic circle. I would probably go round a few times to take it all in. Long live the King of the Hill!
Oh wow, I confess that I have driven around in circles!!!!
Thanks for visiting 🙂
