These two blues together are fascinating. What really draws me into this photo, though, are the different kinds of wavy lines and ripples that each of the three elements has.

Great shot, I like the water coming out of the lion, looks like balls of water.

Hi JM - finally made it. Lines were on & off yesterday - took me ages to post but was able to do some visiting, But when i got to you i couldn't open your comments!!! Anyway here I am!!!!


You guys just do tiles so wonderfully .....oh and fountains!!!!!
