My Contribution to The Creative Exchange






An image of a twelve foot fountain that stands in front of a senator's estate on the bank of the Richelieu River near my home.  This Canadian senator and his wife are not shy about ostentatious displays of their means and acquisitions.  The backyard has two guest houses with giant Roman columns around an infinity pool.  The fabulous gardens and meandering brook in both the front and back of the home attract many photographers (myself included) who want to capture the beauty, architecture and statuary. 

Sharing this photograph with Lisa Gordon's "The Creative Exchange".  Join us there for a feast of photographs!

  2. Oh my! "Ostentatious" is correct! However, your capture is a beautiful one, particularly with your great conversion of the image to photo art.

  10. Love your photo and processing on this Bonnie. Great neighbors, great photo ops! I really love the warmth that this texture gives this lovely fountain. Hope your internet is behaving itself. So frustrating when that happens.
