Vaillancourt Fountain on the Embarcadero

Better if viewed large

 

Vaillancourt Fountain, by Armand Vaillancourt. Built in 1971.

 

This wonderful sculpture sits between the Ferry Building and the end of Market Street in San Francisco.

 

You can walk underneath the water and even go to an observation area and see the scuplture from above. Later I'll post some panoramas once the film is developed.

I just posted another image of the fountain, it's a different angle and a vertical composition so the feel is different.
