Finding the Details in a Large City

While in Cincinnati a couple of weekends ago I found myself in the aptly named Fountain Square a couple of times. The centerpiece of Fountain Square is of course a fountain. Both times I was there something big was happening in the vicinity. On Saturday the St. Patrick’s Day parade was going on, and on Sunday a mini-marathon was happening just a block away. The square was always crowded so my normal angle of getting the entire fountain in would not work so well. I did make a couple of photos of the entire fountain, but I liked this small detail a little better.

The Boy With the Fish

The small spot that I chose to focus on was this out portion that depicts a boy with a fish. All around the fountain they show the many things that make water great. I like the idea of a boy fishing in downtown Cincinnati. I didn’t have much time to make photos while in Cincinnati. It really is a great city that deserves more than I gave it on this trip. That just means that I will have to visit it again sometime.
