That's My World Tuesday, The Weekend in Black and White & Scenic Sunday / Fountains at the Cruise Ship Terminal, San Pedro, California USA

       Click on photo to enlarge!
This is an elaborate fountain of dancing waters at the Cruise Ship Terminal in San Pedro, California.
The pools are divided into sections each of which send water towards the dark sky.
People can walk between the sections if they want to get soaked.
It was a very hot night in San Pedro on this day and many children were running in all directions getting soaked by the spray and overflow of the pools.
It was very entertaining!

That's a fantastic shot. I didn't realize it was a fountain at first but the scene is so beautiful. I like the lone figure and the light and dark.

Did you put your camera on a tripod, set the timer, and get in the photo ? ;-) That would have been awesome!
