Downtown Houston fountain series – Take 1

For this series, I focus on the many water fountains within the CBD. There are a number of them all within walking distance. Currently, these fountains primarily serve as beautiful eye candy- perhaps someday people will gather around and enjoy the evenings at them like they do in other parts of the world.

  3. That’s a great series! I especially like the first one. I’ve never noticed the lights on those fountains before.

    It is nice to watch the homeless bathe in these fountains. What a waste of money.

  6. Steve- I beg to differ, the downtown fountains provide more than just a bathing spot and handwash for the homeless. They break the monotony of the same sidewalks adjacent to the streets. They give artists a venue to showcase their work. They offer a place relax and enjoy a cool misty breeze on hot windy days. Would you rather have nothing there and just a concrete sidewalk in downtown.
