After meeting my dear wife Karen for lunch at Festa Italiana this afternoon, I passed through Clinton Square, smack dab in the heart of downtown Syracuse, on the way back to my car.
Oh, what I saw on this Friday, Sept. 18, in upstate New York.
Nobody’s supposed to use the dancing waters in the big fountain in this history square for anything other than eye candy. It says so right there in red on white.
Hover over and gallery photo for a description. Click on the bottom right photo in any gallery for an enlarged slide show.
Perhaps the powers that be do not want the history of the square tarnished by swimmers in stagnant water. Perhaps they are worried about the general health of the city’s citizens.
This group of folks were not obeying this day. They seemed to be having a blast in the shallow inches lying on top of the concrete and the many feet spraying high overhead.
When I climbed into my car and turned the key, the digital dash thermometer read 90º F.
Have you ever bathed in a water fountain, and if so, what were the circumstances? Would you allow people in your family to do this, and why or why not? Which is your favorite photo, and why?
