Girl with a Dolphin Fountain

This photograph shows a fountain called Girl with a Dolphin by British sculptor David Wynne. It’s a beautiful sculpture but it is a shame we can’t see the girls face from this angle. I would have had to be on the other side of the fountain and not see the bridge to capture the face of the girl. I had previously taken a photograph of the sculpture in the day time. While waiting for a nearby coffee shop to open after a dawn photoshoot. I came back to try to capture the movement of the water in the fountain. Using a tripod even though the sun was rising at this point. Framing the fountain to be as dominant in the photograph as the bridge. I was attempting to avoid the Shrad skyscraper in the background. In the end I chose to include it rather than hide it behind the bridge. It doesn’t matter too much as the Shard and sky are similar colours and the bridge and fountain are so dominant in the frame.
