Same place as yesterday but much later. I embed all my photos with original EXIF information so were you curious what time this photo was taken, take a look (Firefox add-on Exif Viewer recommended). Except for this country, I forgot to adjust to local time. The camera's still on India time so add 3.5 hours which puts this picture around the 10pm area.
See a smaller version on Flickr.
A slight angle adjustment and a bit of fountain wetness later. The other camera-folk around the fountain were obsessing about keeping their cameras water drop free. My Canon 5D (not weather sealed) has been doused by monsoon rains without issue so splashes of water aren't a problem. Don't let a little splash of water prevent you from taking that great photo.
Admiral Yi Sun Sin needs not worry about wetness standing aloft on his perch. Turns out the admiral is credited for creating a unique war vessel known as the turtle boat (???). Not accidentally, the boat looks like a turtle due to its tortoise shell top. One day I'd like to be posthumously known as the creator of a wartime vessel that resembles the shape, color and smell of a banana. Surely these bananas will catch the enemy off-guard.
Mouse over the image for several phases of the fountain's lights

I really have to learn how to create a flash loader to inform you that this flash object is some percentage loaded. As of now, it's just an empty space until the thing loads to 100%. Anyway, by the time you've read through this little time waste distraction, the flash object should have loaded.
