Foundling Fountains – Petersplatz

petersplatz-fountain

The fountain challenge, is, of course, still over, however as I stumble over impressive objects, you can see, I didn’t research the fountains I posted during the last year, so some exquisite examples got missed, I am still sharing fountains with you. Above a fountain from 1779. A classic in a beautiful setting close to Basel University:

Surrounded by houses from the 18th century. To get a better sense of the setting please view the wonky photo below. Sadly using the panorama function on an iPhone doesn’t even come close to wide-angle shots on a proper camera, but for sharing purposes, the pic will have to do :).
