A favorite downtown location with which we are all familiar -- very pleasant this time of year. :)

Cool picture! My wife and I thought about wandering to the Gardens Saturday after lunch at Oliver's, but we only made it as far as 8th St. before we headed back to the car (she had a nail appointment she didn't want to miss - gasp!)

Thanks, Ron. Here's a broader view with a person in it to gain some perspective. :)

The filter or exposure on these photos creates a “cool” sensation perhaps more appropriate for a hot August setting, but nonetheless excellent shots. I’ve always loved the Water Gardens and enjoyed them while attending classes across the street at the law school years ago. Now here—not at the new TCC plaza or even the current Sundance Square parking lot—is where people are apt to sit and read, eat lunch, or hear a host band. With the exception of Burnett Park, of course.

Makes you wonder how many people per year fall off those steps into the water (or in the summer, jump?) :D

Aeration pond.(Reminder: these are infrared photos, thus they appear differently than visible light photos.:))

Yep - the top one had to go in my 'Favorites - by others' folder! Great colors!

No fancy colors in these, just plain old shots of the Water Gardens from the weekend. I made the trip down to the bottom of the pool this time - it's quite disorienting between the noise, the wet steps and fast moving water seen out of the corner of your eye!

Made famous by the movie "Logan's Run" and infamous by the drownings of visitors from Chicago a few years back.
