Fountain in Central Valencia, Spain
The Story of "Spirit of Valencia"
There is a spiritedness to the city of Valencia that is often difficult to capture, but perhaps this photo of a young girl playing on the edge of a fountain against the pink brick wall behind does exactly that. It's really a simple shot, but it made my highlight reel because of the gentle beauty and vibrant life it captures.
To me, this simple shot feels like Valencia; a touch of history, a touch of whimsy, and a subtle but prevalent lust for life.
