Water Dancing, 09 October 2010


Since I’ve been having a little fun with the dichotomous posts of late, here’s a counterpoint to my previous post, which featured fire.






Photo Information (All):

Camera: Nikon D80
Lens: Nikon Nikkor 85mm f/1.8
ISO Equivalency: 100
Color Setting: Vivid

Yes, that’s right…water! Those jets sure do look like little dancers, don’t they?

The subject is a fountain at the southwest courtyard of the Art Institute of Chicago; I’ve photographed this praticular fountain before, a few months back. The water jets are quite lively, but the courtyard doesn’t get a large amount of pedestrian traffic (at least, it didn’t during the times I’ve been there), which is actually a bit nice for me, since I can photograph in peace and quiet. Well, mostly quiet, anyways, what with Michigan Avenue just outside the coutyard walls, and the sound of the fountain itself – though the latter I tend to think of as soothing, and I’m pretty well immune to the constant background noise of the city.

    Water captures are some of my favorite photos and these are great! The fountains made nice shapes.

    Very good. If you go there again, try to get closer so that your photo is filled with just water.
