Are two heads better than one ? by bintal

Are two heads better than one ?

A visit to Leeuwarden today, the cultural capital of Europe for 2018. This is a brand new fountain, yes it is a fountain, which they've installed in front of the station. It's the first thing that visitors see when they arrive. Lucky visitors .. hmmm ..

I very much appreciate all your comments, suggestions and favs. Thank you so much for getting yesterday's photo on the TP and PP.
Very unusual fountain, a super capture

They're so detailed. Cool capture of them!

This is fabulous!

A very unusual fountain! I like the way you captured it with the clock in the centre in perfect symmetry.

Niet echt 'my cup of tea'. Weet je ook wie dit kunstwerk heft gemaakt?
April 11th, 2018  
cool framing of the clock
April 11th, 2018  
Mooi gecentreerd

Neat capture

Very unusual, it would be interesting to see them operating :)

Wow cool fountain!

Cool picture.

A very unusual fountain. Looking for the water but can't see it. Not in operation yet?
April 12th, 2018  
Now that is a most unusual piece of sculpture for a fountain. Is it working yet? I do like the way you've captured the clock through the two heads.

@gijsje Smaken verschillen, maar ik vind 'm vreselijk. Te groot, te wit en ze hebben de ogen gesloten. Ze doen me denken aan doodsmaskers. Meer over de fonteinen vind je hier https://www.friesland.nl/nl/culturele-hoofdstad/programma/eleven-fountains .

Het is een 11 fonteinen project, in elke stad in Friesland komt er één, allemaal verschillend.

@hermann @radiogirl @littleconnie @golftragic I haven't seen it in operation yet, as it hasn't been the right season for fountains. It is supposed to be a "mist" fountain, with a 2 meter high mist cloud hanging around the heads.

All eleven cities in our province are going to have a different fountain. More information here https://www.friesland.nl/en/european-capital-of-culture/programme/eleven-fountains

Nice capture of this interesting sculpture/fountain.
April 12th, 2018  
Ah, Jaume Plensa ... I like a lot of his work. It would be nice to see this fountain in operation. Interesting information in the links too. Thanks!

@bintal Gives a whole new meaning to feeling fuzzy or 'don't have the foggiest idea'.
April 12th, 2018  
Thanks for the link, Two Heads falls into place now. What a great idea.
April 12th, 2018  
@golftragic "don't have the foggest idea" is probably what the artist had in mind .. ha haa .. (you can't tell I don't like them, can you).
April 12th, 2018  
I would have to say they wouldn't be my choice either! But the photo of them is super!
April 12th, 2018  
I guess it is in quite a modern setting - but I am struggling to see how they are fountains - and they are very large and stark.....

@bintal
Dank voor de link. Ze zijn allemaal nogal 'apart'...
April 12th, 2018  
Amazing capture
April 12th, 2018  
That’s a fabulous capture of this very unusual fountain.
April 12th, 2018  
@bintal Thanks Sylvia - I'll check them out. :)
April 12th, 2018  
Hmmm - mist instead of a fountain? The best part of fountains is the sound of the water.......
