Day 210

Today's word is "cauldron".

I wanted to try and get some photos of the font in the church down the road from me but it was all locked up. As I walked back, I spotted this jutting out of the wall. Over it read the legend "Water for the Thirsty".

To be honest, I doubt it works anymore (I didn't fancy giving it a go) but it was still a receptacle for liquid - in this case rain. The cauldron has the power to hold life and protect it. As a cup it brings people together and binds them. So too does this water fountain. It holds water, without which, life wouldn't be able to exist.

Nice take! Like the angle at which you captured it, along with the door to the church. Nice composition and colors.

Cheers. I felt it was the angle that worked best too.
