As the fountain is working this sculpture rotates slowly and gracefully, and is very calming to watch.

It really is a very photogenic structure this fountain dear Nick! And of course, it is only just down the road from this :))))

Lovely scene Amelia, on your advice, I took a shot from the same spot at night, but it was not lit, so it wasn't good enough for here! It's a super fountain ~ Best wishes, Fai

Hello Fai, Little Sandy, Gabe, Sonja and da Moose, many thanks for your praise. It is very restful to watch this fountain as it moves round slowly, and being just outside a hospital, I think many people sit in quiet contemplation here :)

Greetings, Amelia
