Nice, France. July 2004.

I stood there for at least 5 minutes - totally transfixed by this dog ferociously attacking the streams of water coming out of the fountain.

Eventually a small crowd gathered to cheer the little fella on.

The Australian War Memorial in London. You can't see it in the pic, but water runs over the names of the 24,000 towns from whence came the Australians who served and died in the World Wars. The larger words are the battles in which they fought. I found it tremendously moving.

Corleone, Sicily. July 2004.

After exploring the countryside for about 2 hours, the water in my water bottle had basically reached its boiling point. Miles away from anywhere that sold drinks and completely drenched in my own sweat, this fountain appeared out of nowhere - almost as if it was a mirage. One of those moments where you get the feeling that someone/something above was watching and decided to help you out.

It was, without a doubt, the best drink of water that I have ever had in my life.

I work for South Brunswick, and I kept a photo journal of the construction of this fountain right from the day they cracked the Earth. It was really awesome to see this thing come together.

Well, it is a fountain pen, an Esterbrook SJ -- and I must say the color is pretty good for the fact it's 55-60 years old. I have some better shots I took in a ghetto light tent, but my computer is acting funky on me right now and this is what I can get to cooperate.
