Photographer's Note

It was only when I uploaded this photo that I found out that I had taken it in 2006 in Monaco. In reality, however, it was not shot on land, but in the atrium of the elegant cruise ship Crystal Symphony docked at the port of Monte Carlo. A gently converging spiral structure strung with LED lights is seen circling a vertical brass column. The column carries the water to the top from where it is allowed to fall as a veritable shower into a small pond. (A hidden water pump is used to circulate the water up to the top.) A close examination of the smoothly falling water, however, reveals clear plastic lines strung vertically that guides the streams of water. A gilded statue of a pair of ballet dancers on the edge of the fountain adds a touch of elegance. I was serving as a "special topics lecturer" on board the Crystal Symphony.

I wish my friends a happy and rejuvenating weekend.
