The Fisherman Fountain | Prescott Park

I enjoyed a nice walk around Peirce Island and the South End this evening.  The sunset was unexpectedly gorgeous and dynamic – with more shots from the walk to be featured throughout the week.  Today I thought I’d share a shot of the Fisherman in the fountain in Prescott Park.  I love the rich colors of the bricks and the vibrant greens of the trees, and the hint of the bright blue liner of the fountain.  I hope you like it too – this one is a return to the colorful and saturated processing….

Prescott Park Fountain

It’s officially spring when the City puts all of the fountains back out…whether it’s in Prescott Park, where the cool circular fountain above is located (and where the video below was shot), or whether it’s in yesterday’s post at Congress Street.

I have a few older ones from the fisherman fountain taken last year, which you can see HERE. I did a Portsmouth by Day | Portsmouth by Night version of the fountain that I loved, which you can check out HERE.

Congress Street Fountain

The Congress Street fountain is now up and running for the season….but the photo above was taken a few days before the wood cover was removed.  With the warmer weather, I don’t think I’ll catch this part of town this quiet for a long time.  With more people come more shenanigans too…I happened to be walking by this past weekend where someone must have had some fun and filled the fountain with something causing some entertaining foamy bubbles.  The fountain was shut down – anyone catch the fountain making bubbles while it was still on??

I didn’t have my tripod with me when this shot was taken – so I had to improvise and use one of the granite posts to stabilize.  I like how it gives the scene some extra depth and a bit of a different feel than my usual shot.
