Archibald Fountain at Night, Hyde Park, Sydney, NSW, Australia

The J.F. Archibald Memorial Fountain, widely regarded as the finest public fountain in Australia, is located in Hyde Park, in central Sydney, New South Wales. It is named after J.F. Archibald, owner and editor of The Bulletin magazine, who bequeathed funds to have it built. Archibald specified that it must be designed by a French artist, both because of his great love of French culture and to commemorate the association of Australia and France in World War I. He imagined its civic design and ornamentation developing to rival his dream city Paris. The artist chosen was Francois Sicard.

The fountain was unveiled on 14 March 1932 by the Lord Mayor of Sydney, Samuel Walder.

While I was shooting this photo I noticed another photographer doing the same. And I recalled that I had seen him while I was shooting Queen Mary 2 a few days ago. We greeted each other and started chatting about photography, gear, locations etc. We where chatting for quite a while. It turned out that he was a professional photographer from Port Macquarie Owen Wilson and he was on assignment here in Sydney. Looks like Sydney is quite a small town as two photographers appear at the same time at the same places… twice. Just kidding. Hope you also took nice pictures, Owen.

    Thank you very much, folks! I’m glad you like it!
    Just realized I photographed this place only after 5 years living in Sydney. I saw this fountain hundred times and every time I saw it I was thinking I could photograph it but… I had to wait for 5 years for some reason. :-)
