Photographer's Note

*Scanned from a 35mm slide

Time for me to switch gears for just a bit and head back across the pond for a short series of photos. Brian (timecapturer) had mentioned a couple of days ago the shooting of slide film, which got me to reminiscing about doing the same. So, I said to myself “Self, you should dig into your old pictures and pull one from the archives”…and voilà, here’s the one that stood out this time. Thanks for the influence Brian! :)

The thing that caught my eye here were the shapes; the triangular fountain and horizontal…ish layers within, the rectangular windows & frames, and the vertical/rounded shapes of the tree trunks. I didn’t really see it this way when I took the picture many, many years ago…I had actually found the cascading water to be the main attraction. Funny how things are processed in your mind as time goes on, yeah?

I didn’t have much luck researching anything particular about this fountain, but I do remember that it’s located in the Jardin de Ville (City Park). I’ve always had quite a fondness for this city, as it reminds me a great deal of my hometown back in Salt Lake… big enough that it has many modern characteristics, and is nestled between mountain ranges to provide some small town atmosphere. Grenoble is a beautiful city, I would highly suggest a visit if you have the chance.

Thanks for stopping by.

To Maria (Nikkitta) - if you’re seeing this, it’s France once again…bet you can’t guess what city comes next?? :)
