    Great shots! I love the way the figures in the fountain look, like they are smooth and wet. I always though this was the Swan fountain, until I worked in Philly and then I learned it was the Swann Memorial fountain and named after a person with two n’s and not the bird. Anyway, beautiful work. :)
