A great big Tall Ship has just moored alongside the bandstand. (As I post, there are guys climbing up the rigging)
And its a sunny day
Picture opportunity for anyone?
Alas I'm on a different mission now so cant go down.

I never cease to be amazed at the new detail I see every time I revisit the Victoria Fountain. I deliberately waited till daylight started to fade and exploited flash to bring up the detail. Theres lots of material for Pub Quizzes and Treasure Hunts here.

I bow to the master. These are superb. What detail. Have to say I never stopped to examine the fountain :oops:
Yeah Superb.

I'm slinking away with my tiny camera...where are those beginners photo classes held??

This late entry for pics of the Bandstand , though presenting an interesting perspective has had to be disqualified as the taker resides outside the Borough.
