Photographer's Note

Schwarzenburgplatz, Vienna. No sub-Freudian analysis of this one, please!

The Hochstrahlbrunnen fountain is located in the Schwarzenbergplatz and was made possible by the opening of the Vienna Mountain Spring Pipeline in 1873, commissioned by the Emperor Franz Joseph I. The design of the fountain is quite ambitious: the edge of the Hochstrahlbrunnen has a circle of 365 little fountains, representing the individual days of a year. Six medium-size fountains and a central island symbolise the seven days of the week. 12 high fountains symbolise the months of a year, and 24 small fountains for the hours of a day. From the central island, there are 30 fountains that represent the days of a month. This re-design of the original has been in place since 1906, when illuminations were also added.
