Probably the most famous fountain in Bern, Kindlifresserbrunnen is a warning to children to behave or face dire consequences.

From the street there is no really good angle to capture the actual child eating action, so I used a picture I found online as a basis. It was refurbished in 2015, and that shot is likely taken just after that, with a long range lens from across the street to get several meters extra height on the angle.

I had thought to fill in the background buildings as well, but instead added a fake façade in outline in order to not detract from the focal point.
