Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Doulton Fountain – the other side

While collecting some pics of the People’s Palace recently, it occurred to me that most pics of the Doulton Fountain (famously rescued from its original position closer to Saltmarket, where it was slowly dying at the hands of vandals, after becoming derelict), it occurred to me that most pics tended to show it with the Palace being, since it was relocated the museum’s forecourt.

So, I convinced myself to stop on the way home one evening, and grab a pic from ‘the other side’, fortunately with a ‘serious’ camera.

It came out surprisingly bright and detailed, despite being taken in fading light.

Uplighting from the floodlights helped bring up the lower section, which would have otherwise been shaded by the overhanging section above.

Hard to believe this has been here since 2005.

I was looking for pics of it in its original location, but only came up with one, not shared.

I’m sure I have some, but will need to get around to sitting down and digitising the pics I have on film.

I always seem to say… “I’ll do it tomorrow”.
