With an upcoming trip looming large and planning under way, I can’t help but get excited about what I might see even though it’s still weeks away. One theme that I’ve kept my eye out for over the years is fountains. Not just your garden variety spew water up into the air kind of fountains…although those can be nice, too. But fountains that have interesting and expressive faces…personalities…like the handful shown here. Of course, the bamboo fountain in Kyoto doesn’t have a face. But it was just too incredibly fabulous to pass up.

I’m a bit embarrassed to say that I don’t have a very good collection of fountain photos from NYC. And we have some really spectacular ones here. So that’ll have to be the subject of an upcoming Around Town post.
