Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #42: Playing In The Water

"Don't you realize that the sea is the home of water? All water is off on a journey unless it's in the sea, and it's homesick, and bound to make its way home someday."

-Zora Neale Hurston

It's the middle of June, and time for some fun in the water. Rubber duckies bobbling along. Babies being bathed. Dogs out for a swim. Pelicans catching fish. Teens running a car wash. Children running through the sprinklers. There are lots of places you might find someone, or something, enjoying water. I will also accept a photograph of a beautiful waterfall or some other body of water that is moving, but if possible, please try to include someone or something engaged with the water. And please, rather then tapping into your archives, lets go out and do some photography this week.

Extra Credit: Write a paragraph or two about how you used your senses while you were taking your photos for this assignment. What did you hear? What did you smell? Did you touch the water? Did you find something about the experience uniquely different then when you photograph other subjects? I want to hear about your experiences with the camera during this assignment.

Well, it took me two sessions to put it together, but it's only one entry this time. Here it is:

I haven't had time to do the assignments, but I have to say I still enjoy following the posts. Great that you are all still doing this, hopefully I can play along one of these days :)

Hi Carly!
I'm leaving a link to my monochrome entry that I posted Sunday - just beacuse I don't think I'll have time to play otherwise this week and of course because it's a good shot of playing in the water :-)

Jama said...

Finally found the perfect picture for this week's assignment, taken just yesterday, plus 2 more photos of our fun in Phuket.

Terri said...

Here's mine for water play!

Greg said...

I wold like to have gotten a fresh image, but even Trekking every day I don't think I am going to get what you have asked for. I went instead to my archives from last month and found an interesting interpretation for the theme. I hope I get some brownie points for doing something unique.
