We are composed mostly of water. Our hydration is important to our wellbeing.
Previously I have gotten into the topic of water in some of its most natural occurrences. Rivers, rain, snow. But today I want to look at a manmade wonder. Fountains.
I am not talking about drinking fountains, I am looking at ornate, impressive displays or water and our power as a species to manipulate it.
Whether a simple, elegant display or an immense, impressive work, fountains can be artistic, calming, inspiring, and simply beautiful.
Fountains have been showpieces of impressive art. They get lit up at night and dance to the whims of their creators.
Water can be trickled down across various steps and blocks, or it can be shot hundreds of feet into the sky. Fountains are the ultimate show of our ability to move water however we desire.
I am always impressed by the art people create. Subjective or otherwise, fountains certainly fall into this category.
Another simple but elegant and beautiful wonder of our wondrous world.
