London, ON, July 2009
It doesn't get more elemental than water. With it, we have life. Without it, not so much. Optically, it's quite likely one of the most diverse subjects for a photographer - or any other artist, for that matter. It's also hellish to capture cleanly, especially at close range. Exposure, focus and composition are especially challenging when an alternately reflective and transparent stream threatens to douse your lens.
Which explains why I enjoy it as much as I do.
Your turn: Would it be as much fun if it were easy? How does water inspire you?
This photo begins the long, slow process of winding down our most recent Thematic Photographic theme, elemental. You're still welcome to submit something by clicking here.
Tonight at 7:00 EDT, I'll be posting next week's theme. It will be...laundry.
I know, I'm odd that way. Enjoy!
