Brenda's Photo Challenge

It's time for Brenda's Photo Challenge again. Doesn't it seem to roll around fast? The theme this time is "WATER" and Maria from Let the Good Times Roll is our hostess. I loved this theme because there is so much you can do with water. I love taking photos of water and reflections in water etc.. So thanks Maria, this was fun!

These first two photos were taken last weekend in downtown Cincinnati on our Fountain Square. I couldn't decide which angle I liked best so I posted both of them. The fountain is called the Tyler Davidson Fountain but everyone just calls it "the fountain." You can read all about it here.


This photo was taken this summer and I was playing with the macro setting on my little camera. I like how you can see reflections in the water drops.


And this last photo is of my little Maddie at Hilton Head in September. I love photos with reflections in the water. Oh, this makes me want to go back to the beach....... This was a fun challenge and I am looking forward to seeing everyone's photos. Happy Saturday!

Hallo Joan, your pictures are great! I love the fountain rivaling Europe's many fountains (what a nice competition!) and showing the blessings of water, and also the macro shot with the reflections in the water drops. Maddie is lovely!
Have a nice weekend and thanks for joining! Maria

Wow Joan those fountain shots are super and great job with the macro setting. Can't pick a favorite here cause that beach shot is so perfect as well. Love reflections in water.
