Fuente de las Granadas de Ramiro Mejías en una vista nocturna

Fuente realizada en bronce, que se compone por cuatro cuerpos o tazas, y esta abastecida con mas de cincuenta caños, que dan salida al agua propulsada por una bomba de más de cincuenta caballos, regulable en potencia. Tiene una estructura interna de sustento realizada con más de seiscientos cincuenta kilogramos de acero inoxidable. El cuerpo bajo esta compuesto por una taza circular que recoge el agua de los cuerpos superiores. Este cuerpo, de quince metros de diámetro, presenta en su borde externo decoración en relieve de hojas de acanto, con reminiscencias clásicas. En su centro se dispone el astil rodeado por figuras alegóricas a Sierra Nevada, la Vega y a los ríos Darro y Genil. Cada una de estas alegorías, están dispuestas mirando al punto que representan (Véase apartado Iconografía) Estas figuras sirven a su vez de sustento para una broncínea taza de cinco metros de diámetro, que recoge un racimo de hermosas granadas. El remate del conjunto lo supone una figura femenina dispuesta mirando a la fuente de Las Batallas, semidesnuda y con una granada en la mano, atributo de lo que representa: Granada.Historia de la pieza:Esta fuente, inaugurada el 31 de marzo de 2007, tras dos años de trabajo de su escultor, fue donada a la ciudad por la empresa pública Emasagra, con motivo del 25 aniversario de su constitución. Fue concebida por Ramiro Megías, y para su fabricación fue preciso el empleo de un enorme crisol diseñado al efecto. También fue preciso un complejo andamiaje para trabajar su modelado previo.

This portrait was made during my first few days with Humana People to People India​ two months ago. One day in Delhi was enough for me, and we arranged to visit the Academies for Working Children in Gurgaon as quickly as possible. 

The foundation is running two centers with multiple satellites servicing the children of migrant communities living under the skyscrapers of this financial and industrial hub. In cooperation with Dell and Nokia, children normally hustling for rupees in the street now attend classes in classrooms furnished with computers and dedicated teachers.

These are the very children that are somehow invisible as they walk in between cars attempting to sell sun shades and the like. They go through garbage dumps in search of scraps to eat, and organize the plastic from the fabric and the glass from the metal. 

The morning of this portrait we were led to this community by the Humana People to People​ India team, through hundreds of meters of garbage to each side. The fact that these children live in such an environment is enough for most with children to shudder, yet these children know no other life. We walked to the center of the community and immediately began talking with the parents, the children all around us. In little time the students were organized and we set up our gear for the photography.

An hour or so after we began, we started to put our cameras away when I noticed this little girl a few meters away from the scene. She was somewhat withdrawn and began to cry when others began to tease her about being photographed, began to cry when they aggressively pushed her to do so. In seeing this I asked them through gestures to stop doing so, and pulled out the small camera to make her portrait. 

Amazingly she regained her composure and produced the most incredible expression just a minute or so after being teased to tears. It is this ability for these children to rise above the circumstances and speak to the world that pushes me to continue with this work, photographically and through these schools. I am proud to have photographed her, honored to have been in her presence even for just that minute.

This isn't a very notable or good shot but the look of the second image on the bottom interested me. I took the shots seconds apart in the middle of a snow flurry a couple of days ago here in Scotland. The bottom image was a long exposure of a few seconds which completely blurred the motion of the snowflakes rendering them invisible and created an almost misty or foggy look to the image.

Do you want to make your web site mobile-friendly?
More and more people are using their phones for more and more things. Make sure that your site is looking great on a phone.

Have you checked if your sites are compatible with the smart phones?

There was something exceptional about this young student, something about her ability to face the sunshine although her eyes were clear in color. She attends one of our schools in Mewat, Haryana and has a wonderfully decorated classroom in which to sit safely for her studies. Two of our schools are located in this area, along with twelve more that Humana People to People India is opening shortly. This was my first time with her and her friends, and was truly an enlightening experience.

These girls face an incredible challenge in their own communities. The boys are given preference regarding education, and many of them had never attended school regularly prior to this school. The teacher is quite young and from their community, displaying an example in front of their eyes of a young woman pursuing a higher education, with parents open to such an idea.

This image was made on the roof of a neighbor's building, allowing us to escape the usual antics of the boys and men. The girls felt at ease in front of the camera, even though it was their first time. They exchanged fabrics and had fun with each other while waiting for their portraits. I do look forward to further supporting this school and hope that more will feel the desire to do so from this and other communities.

In Beautiful Sidney By The Sea  - Beacon Landing Restaurant.

Located at the end of Beacon Avenue, just steps from the Pacific Ocean. With a view of snow covered Mount Baker, tugboats on Haro Strait, colorful sailboats, playful seals and maybe even a diver or two.
