Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #30: Things That Float

"Creativity is a lot like looking at the world through a kaleidoscope. You look at a set of elements, the same ones everyone else sees, but then reassemble those floating bits and pieces into an enticing new possibility."

-Rosabeth Moss Kanter

Note: Just a little reminder that for the next few weeks, I will be visiting your entries on Sunday afternoon, as opposed to throughout the week as I usually do. My schedule should be back to normal soon, so hang in there. I will visit everyone who participates, but on Sunday afternoons for a little while longer.

Pretty self explanatory... show me THINGS THAT FLOAT. Leaves in a stream, pretty candles in a bath tub or pool, clouds, balloons, a scoop of ice cream in soda... aka... Root Beer FLOAT. Yum, by the way! A boat on the water, a piece of ice in a glass of water. Children's bubbles. You get the idea. Feel free to get creative with this challenge, and as always, archived photos are fine, but try to post ones you haven't showed us before.

Extra Credit: Show us a FLOATING object that is seasonal. An example would be an autumn leaf FLOATING in a stream, or a FLOATING candle that looks like a pretty spring flower.

You have until next Sunday evening at 9:00PM ET to get your photo, post it to your blog, journal or website, and then comeback here with the direct link to your entry. PLEASE REMEMBER, unlike the Round Robin Challenges, it must be the direct link to the entry specific to this challenge. A general link will not be added to next week's Linking List. If you want to leave a hyperlink that's fine, but it MUST be in addition to your full link. Also, please link back here so other folks can also do the assignment.
