This weekend, I'm taking you for a tour of fountains and sculptures. It's been so hot in NY with temperatures in the 90's that cooling off by a fountain sounds like a good idea! I took the first photo at Lasdon Park and Arboretum in Somers, in the countryside of NY. Lovely traditional gardens here and a beautiful fountain in the entrance to the park. I love the summer sunlight shining through!
This is a collage of two fountains at Ridge Hill, Yonkers, in the suburbs of NY. A more modern design. I love how the water forms circular motions.
Here, we are in New York City, at the corner of Park Avenue and East 40th Street. The fountain also has a modern design with a lovely marble structure (and of course skyscrapers in the background).
We're not in NY anymore. I took this photograph of a fountain in one of the town squares in Salerno, Southern Italy. The dolphins are magical and the building in the background is so picturesque.
But there are dolphins in NY, too, and mermaids at the Rockefeller Center. There are several of these fountains in the entrance as you walk towards the center, surrounded by beautiful flowers.
This is probably one of the most photographed sculptures, right in front of the Rockefeller Center building, the statue of Prometheus. There is a reflection of the statue in the granite wall behind it.
And here is a fun fountain at Madison Square Park in New York City in a playground for children. Splash! Kids keep cool here playing in the water!
