Monochrome Fountain

Elkhart County Courthouse, Goshen, Indiana. Poseidon Fountain or Neptune Fountain (1912), J.L. Mott Iron Works. Cast zinc with bright copper paint. The water is turned off for the winter. When the fountain is running, water spouts from the mouths and nostrils of the sea creatures at Neptune's feet.

A great work of art - But the God of the Oceans must be as far from any ocean as he can possibly be!

This is great David and I really like your moon photo. I have PSE, but don't know that much about it. I would have loved to have captured the full moon or made it look good as you did....Michelle
