Texas Fountains

Living in Texas provides many amazing opportunities, but the hot and arid weather in the state provides photographers with countless opportunities to photograph all kinds of different water flows in the cities.

Fountains were originally purely functional, connected to springs or aqueducts and used to provide drinking water and water for bathing and washing to the residents of cities, towns and villages. Until the late 19th century most fountains operated by gravity, and needed a source of water higher than the fountain, such as a reservoir or aqueduct, to make the water flow or jet into the air.
