Photographer's Note

Sitting eating a sandwich and enjoying a cup of coffee outside near Tower Bridge, I noticed this young lad walking round the base of this fountain. Surprisingly, he never even looked at the bronze naked female forms which made up part of this water feature. When I was a boy of this age, I would have stared and giggled with my pals at a sight like this! How times change.

This fountain is called "Waterfall" and is by the sculptor Antony Donaldson, from 1991. It features cavorting water nymphs, with everyday items like books, a watch and a camera - all cast in bronze - seemingly scattered at the fountain's edge. And parts of the bronze work, especially in the nymphs in the water, have taken on a lovely series of colours as a result of verdigris and lime scale.
