Faulbrunnen

This is another one of Wiesbaden's fountains - the Faulbrunnen. Claudia, who left me a comment, had suggested to take this picture. She told me that she used to get a can of water for her grandmother here regularly. Unfortunately, the area around it seems to be construction area at the moment (there's a fence and machinery standing around). I'll check back to see if something changes.

An also interesting discovery was the facade of the building behind it. It's an office building of a bank. The glass has a light blue tint (one of their corporate colors) which made the sky look really nice blue. I'll have to go back and see if I can get some more interesting photos out of that...

Thanks for your comments wolf, dia, jenny!

Sam - that's just a rood so keep the water safe from downfalling leaves and dust. I hope that during the construction process they'll also do something to make this place look a bit nicer.

Thank you! I am glad it is still there! This used to be a beautiful little spot to get the water and sit on a bench contemplating the day. I guess nothing stays the same for long. Wiesbaden was always a beautiful city. I enjoy your pictures very much. Keep up the good work.

Claudia
