Water breathing dragon

Google reminded me it was Gaudi's birthday a couple of days ago. He's one of my favorite architects. Love his fanciful style. I was lucky enough to be able to hug his dragon fountain at Park G├╝ell in real life when I visited Barcelona, Spain. It's a magical place. [Jon Atkinson photo]

Not to be critical but the mouth is too small. On the dragon. It's okay to me not that impressive but im sure it would be to me if I had put all that hard work into it. I'm not saying it isn't beautiful but Im not crazy about it. Keep on blogging friend! Makes it easy for me--- you do the work I reap the benefits. Thanks!!!

Picture doesn't really do it justice. From a front view the mouth is really quite large and the water spills out of it vigorously. It's probably more of a lizard than a dragon though. I just used dragon because that's what the photog called it.

So it is something you'd have to see in person to enjoy the true beauty of it. You're fortunate you got to see this in person. It's colorful, bet it is awesome to see. The anonymous reader!
