Lazy Sunday afternoon


A praça (park or square) near the metro and some other transport stations in the Mouraria area of Lisbon, on a Sunday afternoon. The fountains are on and off, which seem to mesmerise the kid.


Happy July month end.

Two games at one time...this is a delight, Louis!

I am loving this tour...
Louis: Thank you Ray, glad you are still enjoying it smile
i remember amusing myself with the open tap of the wash basin as a boy, Louis. and on several occasions had to be admonished about water wastage.
Louis: Heh,heh - yes, we even have an old folk song that tells the young ones not to waste water.
The frozen in image water... looks like entities about to materialize. Cool.
Louis: Now that you mention it - like those wombs in sci-fi movies ...

I have seen these sorts of water features Louis, and they can do ll sorts of things. I can see why the child is fascinated.
Louis: Thank you gutteridge. Similar water features abound in our newer malls and in summer, children play in the water endlessly.
It would make a great soccer practice, Louis, to maneuver the ball around all those fountain spouts!
Louis: If he can stay on his feet on the wet chrome steel ... he'll be a magician. Should apply at Ajax.

The water seems to have turned to ice Louis
Louis: It was a warm day, Chris. People would have welcomed ice.

Such water features can be very refreshing.
Louis: They are, especially on a warm day, Philine.
The water looks like a set of abstract sculptures Louis
Louis: They do, Bill. I have spotted an old man with a stick smile
I love how the water looks like ice. Very cool.
Louis: Thank you Mary. The ice look is cool smile
Is the idea to dribble (no pun intended) the ball between the fountains.
Louis: smile No I don't think so - but someone will try, sooner or later and break a leg on the wet chrome-steel.
They are a lovely sight on a hot day!
Louis: Almost as good as an ice cold beer smile
Always fun to watch...
Louis: Yes, these places provide lot of people watching, Frank
Très originale photo ...bravo
Louis: Je vous remercie de votre commentaire.
