Thematic Photographic 247 - On the water

Frozen in time
Laval, QC
July 2012
I was something of a late bloomer when it came to swimming. For a lot of reasons, I learned to swim at a relatively advanced age. Once bitten, though, it stuck, and it took years until my parents were able to coax my then-prune-skinned form back out of the water.

Our kids apparently inherited the fish gene, and have become strong, comfortable swimmers in their own right. Since we spend as much time as possible around the water, and given where we are in the calendar, I thought this week's theme should reflect our watery reality. Because if we're experiencing it here, I'm willing to guess you are, too.

So for the next week, I'll be sharing scenes from in and around - indeed, on - the water. Hope you'll join in, as well.

Your turn: Share a photo from on the water - or one that suggests or reflects the theme - on your blog or website (or Facebook, or anywhere online, really.) Leave a comment here letting everyone know where to find it. Visit other participants through the week, and feel free to return with additional posts as the inspiration hits you. If you'd like to learn more about how Thematic works, click here. Otherwise, can't wait to see what you've got!

Great action shot of your son! He seems to have the pool to himself! I like this on the water theme, and posted what I had right on my phone, but I hope to search for something out of the ordinary! Here's mine

I love swimming! My mom has always referred to my sister and I as fish out of water. :-)

Great shot Carmi!!! I literally 'dived right in' to the whole swimming thing, as many Australians are!! Its almost a must do to have everyone child swimming by school!

Mine, is also a bit of a 'On the water' (its a stretch, but run with me here...) as my last pic in this weeks WWordless Wednesday, has a Pelican 'On the Water' (and maybe several feet above it)!!

Mines up as well at AussiePomm - Pelican in-flight

Have a great day!!

Well Carmi, I sort of took some liberties with this week's theme. Hope you don't mind.

I had to go back in my files a whole year - and realize it's been that long since I've been on the water.
