I like the shade of sepia here - it looks so good! Great!

A very nice fountain; great sepia effect in addition.

marLou said...

Nice choice. The sepia tone gives you a sense of time when art-deco was at its height in popularity. The drinking fountains of today doesn't even compare to this ornate one.

Beautiful drinkking fountain - a work of art! Great, Mojo! :)

Ralph said...

The classic artistry you saw in Rochester looks especially well in sepia. The view of light marble is what the tone suggests. A perfect use of sepia and art!

It's kind of fancy for just water, So what does the fountain serve? ;-)

This shot was begging to be done in Sepia. Classically beautiful.

Annie said...

Just gorgeous in any color or style.

hi mojo,

i was scanning through your recent posts and photos and find many of your shots remarkable.

You mentioned the Blue Ridge parkway - it's on my list of motorcycle routes; hopefully, Price Lake will be warmer in July or August.

May we all rust in peace,

Cheers,

GAH

You're right this building is full of
grandly impressive features. What is that fish suspended by? I've embiggened but cant spot what is holding him up. :)

I admit, I'm in my dysfunctional mode once again!
First I thought the picture above were jellybeans.
As for this, I thought it was a kerosene light of some sort from an Indian Restaurant or something.

Classic clean lines yet ornate at the same time.
I like the elegance and richness the sepia gives the shot. Not sure a color shot would hit me with the same kind of wow factor.
Nice one Mojo!

Robin said...

Very swanky and art deco-y. Perfect for sepia.

ROSIDAH said...

Its very antique and with a sepia touch looks like gold... Makes me wonder, what's the actual color? Best wishes :)

Shadow said...

wouldn't mind have one of these!

NicoleB said...

I think this is one of the coolest water fountains ever :D!
Lovely shot!

Patti said...

Gorgeous water fountain. I've seen similar works of art in NYC. Yes, Art Deco, like Robin said.

The sepia really adds to its artistic look.

Dianne said...

I love the dark shading around the bowl part - all those years of erosion ;) made beautiful

I love the scalloping and the fish, even in small format looks amazing.

Hi Mojo,
As usual I am running very very late. But, I have to agrre with everyone else about this fountain.

I have never seen one so elaborate. I also love the effect you got. It looks so shiny almost just like marble.

Great pick and I hope you are having a super weekend!!:-)

Mojo said...

That's not an effect... the fountain actually is marble. The whole wall is. Along with the floor, the tabletops, and every other flat surface in the place!

Julie said...

What a beautiful fountain. I like the different shades of the marble in sepia.
