The fountains in my books are meant to add to the romance (because yes, fountains are romantic), but there are also some real fountains that are just plain awesome, romantic or not.
There's my new personal favorite, the book fountain in Budapest:
The Banpo bridge water fountain in Seoul
And, of course, Chicago's own Buckingham Fountain
And the Crown Fountain in Chicago's Millennium Park
In an earlier post, I covered the Bellagio Fountain in Las Vegas. Maybe it's the time of year (it's been rather hot here), or maybe it's just the beauty of dancing water, but I'm glad that there are people who are constantly inventing new and more glorious fountains, but even the smallest fountain is a joy to behold.
