This image was taken in the center of the city of Leiden, The Netherlands.

In the floor of a part of this market square a randomly spouting fountain is mounted. Very attractive and challenging for kids, because one has to try this part of the square to pass without getting soaked. Their attempt was, to a certain extent, successful, mine not however. A mitigating circumstance for me was that I'm not a kid, ☺ .

A manic situation, therefore it's my entry for Manic Monday.

That would have been a hit with the kids that's for sure. I guess you not so much. Great capture though.

The light and color make for a great city photo too. It is nice to see an image of this place given the historic bond it has to my area.

How much fun for children and photographers! Terrific composition with the stores and kiosks in the background.

Thanks for sharing, Cornelius. I'd rather be there as a kid, the water is really inviting.
