Der Swimming Pool ist in diesen heißen Sommertagen zum Zweck der Abkühlung ein beliebter Ort, der zum Verweilen einlädt, aber nicht nur dann erfreut man sich an den Wasserbecken – auch in der Fotografie ist der Pool ein beliebtes Objekt. „Take me there“ denkt man sich bei den folgenden Pool-Fotografien. Wir laden ein, hier in der digitalen Version, sich in die Nähe eines Pools zu begeben.
