Courtyard Fountain



A steady trickle of water in the courtyard fountain of the Selma/Dallas County Public Library creates a relaxing atmosphere for visitors who might want to rest upon one of the benches. Some choose to make a wish here. Looking through the fountain, you can see the children's wing of the library. The wrought-iron grillwork is in keeping with the municipal complex's southern-inspired architecture.

One of the things about Cairo that is so lovely is the way that they used to put fountains in all the courtyards. Nice shot

Nice fountain. I like the sounds fountains make.

The fountain and the ironwork remind me of the courtyards tucked away in the French Quarter in New Orleans. Lovely and serene.

I hope the wishmakers are leaving behind lots of coins for the
library!
