Princes Square fountain

I believe this Val d'Osne fountain was shipped out here from Paris to celebrate the anniversary of Launceston's municipal water system in 1858 (I think). It's quite pretty, more to come.


  1. I took a photo of this a few weeks back. Got there in the early morning, and although the light was doing all sorts of interesting things couldn't quite get one that I was altogether happy with.

  2. It's actually a surprisingly difficult fountain to photograph. There's lots going on, but getting the "right" angle is a chore.

    Hope you enjoyed (or at least didn't hate!) your Lonny visit.

  3. It definitely has that French look to it, looks great in B&W.
