Fontaine du Palmier


When we emerged from one of the métropolitain tunnels of Paris, I caught sight of this fountain (which I didn’t know was a fountain at the time until I did a Google image-recognition search after returning to the United States) and decided to capture the moment. Although the fountain has been captured from many other different perspectives, I find this piece particularly unique, and in a good way. It incorporates the French flag, trees for balance (instead of just randomly blocking up portions of the composition, the incorporation [in my opinion] actually does more for the picture), etc.

According to Wikipedia, Le Fontaine du Palmier "was designed to provide fresh drinking water to the population of the neighborhood and to commemorate the victories of Napoleon Bonaparte." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fontaine_du_Palmier)

Yesterday I wasn’t able to make a blog post due to connection problems of some sort. Moreover, due to the other days I’ve missed this month, I’ll be posting a bit extra.

About Zechariah Barrett

Greetings! Jambo! Hola ! 你好 ! Bonjour ! Hallo ! Привет ! Buongiorno ! こんにちは ! Thanks for checking out my profile. I'm Zechariah, an author, photographer, graphics designer, language learner, techie... I'll stop there for now. One more thing. I'm also a Christian. Depending on your life experience, that may mean different things to you. I want to assure you, however, that I don't subscribe to all the prevailing views. I don't subscribe to hate. I don't engage in party politics. I both care about a robust economy as well as the environment and social issues. I want to truly live my life by the Spirit of Christ, and that entails loving others and caring for this world. That's how I'm different. I'm not here to cast judgmental glances or make you feel like trash. My heart is to help others, and I hope that shows in all that I do. I also want to have a discussion. Not a debate, not an argument. I want to engage with my readers and viewers regardless of our differences, and then start a conversation. Let's make this world a better place. Together.
