The Grand Army Plaza was designed as a way to transition from the major streets in Brooklyn to Prospect Park. Bailey Fountain was built in the center of the oval plaza in the late 1920s. The fountain was named for Frank Bailey, a graduate of Union College in Schenectady, NY, who was actively involved in the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and donated the funds for the fountain. Neptune is just one element of the fascinating fountain design.
I suppose I could have gotten the same effect by standing out in the rain watching a puddle, but in the studio, my camera didn’t get wet…
As we dropped strawberries into a deeper bowl of milk, the splash made by the milk was more dramatic. The milk appeared so thick as it reached out of the bowl, making for a very messy experiment!
Normally, I would be having blueberries and milk with cereal, but this photo exercise was a fun challenge to catch the splash. I particularly liked this one catching the blueberry suspended in mid air.
