Weekly Photo Challenge: An Unusual POV

Font de la Granota

Child at Play

Whenever I visited my sister in Barcelona (Spain), I would regularly pass by the ‘Font de la Granota’ (Fountain of the Frog) on the corner of Avinguda Diagonal and Carrer de Còrsega.

Sculpted by Josep Campeny i Santamaria (1858 – 1922), the font depicts a boy lying on a riverbank holding a frog.

Something about the clarity of the portrayal and the apparent joy of the child at play often made me stop and admire the work before moving on.

I tried many ways to try and capture the spirit of the piece to take home with me.

This one is my favourite:
