Indeed, Malik! It was a pleasure being this close to the fountain because it did cool the air a little!

Buen encuadre y magnífica fotografía. Las esculturas de Botero son voluminosas. El ayuntamiento de Oviedo tuvo el capricho engalanar la ciudad con varias de sus esculturas.

Just seen, John! Sorry for late reply!
No I last was (worked) in the City of London in the early '90s. Broadgate Station I think had been renovated by then (I'm not 100% certain) but I certainly never went there after that time and didn't notice it if it had been there earlier!
I worked in the West End of London mainly and in the '80s (it seems like yesterday!) so missed the big building boom that came immedately afterwards in the City. The last time I was in the City I saw The Gherkin and was astonished because I thought it was still in the design stage. I reckon that might have been around 2004 or 5.

A magnificent fountain and a magnificent hand encouraging the jets of water to rise higher and higher.

Very nice perspective, Andy.
Botero's hand figures, possibly, a "help!" of the Man submerged by concrete - as well as by junk food ;)
Have a nice day!

Wow that hand is extremely fat, yet the fingers are slim. It looks like a great piece of sculpture,

I think it's one of those you either love or loathe. A bit 'Marmite' in other words!!
(For the record, I loathe it but love Marmite!)
