A late entry! Looking for something else on the Internet, I stumbled across a picture of this fountain at a nearby Seville hotel. I ran down to take a look and this photo. I love the tile work, which is SO Spanish and would add a lot of color to the cover of my book.
This is the Plaza de Pato (Duck Plaza) where I went dancing in the fountain one hot summer night. It would be the logical choice for the cover photo if only I could get the city to tow all the cars out of the way for an hour or so. Maybe we'll use it and get rid of the cars in PhotoShop. But then again, maybe another fountain would be better.
The Plaza de España fountain is dramatic, but I'm not sure I want quite that much water shooting up in the scene. Will people wonder how I managed to dance in such a massive, fire hose-strength geyser? Would they keep picturing me being thrown in the air like something out of a Roadrunner cartoon?
The duck fountain in Maria Louisa park is certainly colorful enough – too colorful and crazy? Does it say Spain to you?
Then there's the zig-zag fountain, which is also very dramatic, but perhaps a bit too geometric? Does the pattern seem too much like 60s op art?
Do you have a photo of a Seville fountain I should consider? If so, post it on my Facebook page or send it to me via email. If you had to pick a fountain to dance in, what would it be?
