As Anne from Slow Shutter Speed has pointed out this week, “Water enhances our photos, adding impact.” And we might add to her post that water impacts everything we do in life.
Water is the driving force in nature.Leonardo da Vinci
Water helps us get our feet wet as we strive for something better or just putz around enjoying the moment.
Water brings us together . . . maybe just for today only, maybe for a lifetime.
Water elevates all that is above and around, allowing us to appreciate nature in any season . . .
or to stand and discover new worlds in watery reflections: new patterns, new movement, new ways of seeing.
Water makes ripples, turning ordinary to extraordinary.
Water lights up the night, adding glistening touches to the ordinary . . .
or provide a source of food and shelter for those willing to dip into the unknown.
Above all, perhaps, water enables us to become more than we thought we could be.
After all, water is life no matter how you relate to it. (Photo at top of this post: Early morning reflection on the Elbe River.)
For whatever we lose (like a you or a me)
It’s always ourselves we find in the sea.e. e. cummings
For more entries and some fabulous photos of water in many shapes and forms, head to Anne’s post and immerse yourself.
Travel near water, if you can . . .
