Study: Girl with Swan on the Fountain of the Three Rivers / Philadelphia, PA / March 2007
Back in November I posted a night-time picture of this fountain on Logan Circle. The water is turned off for the winter and hasn't yet been turned back on, allowing for a better study of the figures. (When the fountain is on, water spouts from the swan's mouth.) The girl was basking in the late-day sun. Look how her hands seem to melt into the swan's feathers. And look at the position of her arms and hands -- I think that she is dancing out there on the parkway.
