Photographer's Note

Detail from Fastnachtsbrunnen (Carnival fountain) at Mainz, Schillerplatz.
The fountain shows a bronze tower with approx. 200 figures representing several types of carnival customs or disguise, spread on a total height of almost nine metres. It was a surprise for me to find out that this monument has already reached 51 years of age.
An abundance of water is necessary and always welcome on hot days. While carnival will always be celebrated in February or March when temperatures are low or even freezing, this is the fools' contribution to a pleasurable summer.
And as the last carnival parades are just about to dissolve at the time when I publish this, my capture terminates my little series about Mainz carnival fountain.
