C'est magnifique. Je trouve qu'on lui a fait une tête de poupon.

This series will be fun, Astrid, because I watched you find many! smile
Picturit: I hope so, Ginnie. It was kind of a treasure hunt for me....

Cette fontaine est vraiment superbe !

I like the detail Astrid. Sometimes we need more than just an overview of something. Get in there I say (I don’t mean getting wet) and take close ups.
Picturit: I like that you say that, Chad. To be honest, I sometimes like the details better than the total overview. More to come and I made sure I did not get wet smile

A wonderful detail of this magnificent fountain sculpture!
Picturit: Thank you, Philine. I sometimes like the details better.

A tutor who tooted the flute,
Tried to tutor two tooters to toot,
Said the two to the tutor, “It’s tougher to toot,
than to tutor two tooters to toot!”
Picturit: grin.... that is quite the riddle there, Bill. How fun.
Thank you.
Astrid.

een prachtige detail van deze grootse fontein Astrid..

je hebt er toch een paar muntjes in gegooid ?

prettige dag
Picturit: Dank je wel, Willy. Nee, Ik heb er geen muntjes ingegooid. om heel eerlijk te zijn, het was zo druk dat er geen doorkomen aan was en ik ben niet zo op mijn gemak met veel mensen om me heen. Op die dag was er helaas ook de Rome Marathon en we hebben heel veel gemist omdat we om moesten lopen vanwege afgesloten wegen.....
Astrid.
Wat een mooie en krachtige "uitsnede" van dit beeld.
Picturit: Dank je wel, Marjolein. Soms vind ik de details mooier dan het geheel. (Dat geld misschien alleen voor mij hoor)

He could be drinking wine - or sea slug soup.
Picturit: We will never know, Louis.... I hope he does not get drunk, he might drown in the fountain....
Astrid.
I would imagine there are so many statues in Rome one could spend ages just photographing the individual characters in them.
Picturit: To be honest, Brian. I sometimes the details better than the whole picture. I liked the fountain, but the details were far more interesting... too many people also...
Astrid.
His eyes and cheeks are so realistic. He has to hang onto his horse, he's blowing so hard! smile
Picturit: It is good that he hangs on.... he might fall indeed.
Astrid.
i also framed this part with the horse and horn blower in the Trevi Fountain when we were there in 2006 Astrid....petersmile
Picturit: I liked this very much, Peter. It was too bad that also the Marathon of Rome was that day. Too many people to my liking and it was hard to get to places, many roads were closed, also for pedestrians.
Astrid.
Beautiful detail from that amazing fountain!! I love that thing...looking forward to your other takes...
Picturit: Thank you, Elizabeth. More details from other places will come.
Astrid.
i think it was renovated in recent times, Astrid. this is a nice shot and this well built gent has a powerful set of lungs.
Picturit: I don't know about the renovation, Ayush. It did seem to be clean and very bright in the sunlight. I think he must be exhausted by now too, tooting that horn for so many years grin...
Astrid.
