The Almost Silhouette


The light catches the water as it dances in the fountain. The casino is just behind. An iconic view of Monte Carlo - a photo taken by thousands of visitors each year. After all these years, I suppose I should feel it's all too corny for words, so don't tell anyone, but actually I still love it! Here it is almost in silhouette.

What a stunning photo. I love the way you can see the texture in the water.

I think that the minute you no longer find this beautiful and wonder at it, is a sign that you have lost joy for life and I will be very worried for you.

The fountain is beautiful, Jilly! And that gorgeous building in the background is a casino?? Wow.

You were at the right spot at the right time - especially the water is outstanding.

Yes, beautiful! Great photo and most fascinating the water. Well, typical Monaco - diamonds instead of water!

It is a lovely cap of liquid. Fountains are fascinating and you photographed this so well for our pleasure.

I think it's splendid Jilly!!! Don't apologize. It is a perfect shot of Monte Carlo!!

I never fail to take 100 photographs of la Tour Eiffel each time I'm there and never tire of it. It's something i can't stop myself from doing. I hope I never get over that! :)

Great photo. I am one of those tourists who have photographed the casino. I have a couple of pictures of it in my office. Your photo is much more creative.

Very very very nice!
There's something special in the way you captured this view as an almost b&w silhouette.
