" Nothing but Water "

I have passed by this fountain a hundred times but never got the chance to take pictures of it.
Last week, the timing couldn't be right, as i was nearing the area, i saw some kids playing around and this one kid who wouldn't get out of this fountain was happily taking a bath. (literally...^0^)
Apparently, he's not camera shy at all, he was so pleased to see me holding out a camera and even splashed water at me! ^0^

First, he got me this pose...

and then, he turns his back and went inside the fountain...

and there he was, only with his briefs erm... with his trunks on aiming for this side shot pose. ^0^

His family, who were shading out on the tree beside this founain don't seem to mind at all.
This is what it looks like in Manila... refreshingly hot, fountains used as shower baths but ultimately, merely having fun and enjoying life. ^0^

Info: This fountain could be found at The Plaza Calderon de la Barca in Binondo,Chinatown.
Before it was named after a spanish playwright, Plaza Carlos IV.
Nowadays, it's known as Plaza Lorenzo Ruiz, after the first Filipino saint whose statue dramatically stands infront of this Plaza.

On another note:
