Thematic Photographic 187 - Watery


Splish splash I wasn't taking a bath
Detroit, MI, December 2011

I've been staring at water fountains since I was a wee munchkin. I remember rating shopping malls by the variety and quality of their spritzers, and would often fake being tired just so I'd get to sit alongside and stare. They're such calming additions to public spaces that sometimes I wish I could meet whoever was responsible for them to say thanks.

Yes, I'm odd like that.

Also odd is this week's Thematic theme, watery. We're going to spend the next week shooting water. If you're into getting wet, here's the deal...

Your turn: You take a picture. You share it on your blog. You leave a comment here letting folks know where to find it. You visit other participants to share and learn and feel joy. We all have an awesome week. You game? (If you're new to the whole Thematic thing, just click here. Otherwise, have at it.)

Water - fun stuff. Love playing in it, and my photos for this theme are of just that - playing in the water.

My watery offerings are here.

The middle pic won't embiggen - must have cropped it too heavily :(

Oh, how I'm drawn to watery scenes - to sit by, swin in or just photograph. Water can be powerful or silky, frozen or just frozen in time. It's relaxing, soothing, reflective and serene. And I think I'm well past the limit of links in a single comment. Maybe one more - fishing season is open soon.
