Natural Spring in Saratoga Springs NY

October was my month to submit a picture for the 'Interpret This!' challenge.  I had to submit three choices so I did but I really REALLY wanted the picture of the fountain in Saratoga Spring NY to be chosen.  IT WAS!  YEAH!

We went there 3 or 4 years ago for a work conference, spent a week, and did lots of sightseeing.  My favorite sight was the Hawthorne Fountain.  The fountain itself is made of stone and is smooth and has a wonderful shape to it.  The bowl of the fountain is filled with amazing colors from the years of mineral deposits from the water. The water comes out of the fountain spigots in sporadic curly short bursts.  It all just added up to magic.

Here are some more pictures of the fountain.


  1. I told myself that I was going to participate in this challenge, in an unofficial capacity of course, when the next picture was posted, because I enjoy seeing everyone's results so much. But now I'm not sure because this picture seems like it could be a very difficult one to "interpret"--but it's a real challenge, which is the point, I guess!

  2. I'm thinking rusted fabric right now- but I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do with it!
