Vast Reservoir of Nature

The inspirational quote from Debbie at Travel with Intent for this photo challenge

“The sea is the vast reservoir of Nature. The globe began with sea, so to speak; and who knows if it will not end with it?”

–  Jules Verne

The quote made me think of what I could link from my photos with the above quote. I had an idea but didn’t know how to execute the idea into a photo. I am so glad that Corel PaintShop Pro has great tutorials. I played around for quite a while, changing my mind and photos until I finally said that is enough. It isn’t exactly as I wanted but I didn’t have the photos that my mind wanted.

This mechanical world
wheels turn
cogs interact
pulling
pushing
nature
to the brink.
Polluting her waters
her rivers
her oceans
destroying the sea

Abstract – Images from my lens

The word prompt from Ragtag Daily Prompt: Abstract

I love this theme. I often think of photography as art as well as capturing life in the moment. I have quite a number of photos that I have deliberately taken in a folder called “Arty Ones”

All of these photos are what I saw with my minds eye. None have been altered or enhanced. Many involve shadows or water as they can provides many abstract images. I hope you enjoy my Abstract images.

The idea from Debbie at Travel With Intent: Suggestion Only

I love the quote Debbie supplied to inspire –

“To me photography must suggest, not insist or explain.”  – Brassaï

All of these photos are what I saw and they have not been enhanced or changed from the original. I have a folder with quite a few images, some are unintentional and others I have kept because they say a certain something to me.
A footpath. A pity I cannot remember the exact place as I took this in 2012   I like the colours and shapes

This one was deliberately taken. Of course I have one with the ant in focus drinking but kept this photo as it has so much to see

The movement of water always has a fascination

The Faces of Water

The word prompt from Nancy’s Photo a Week Challenge: Water

Why do I say the faces of water?
Water can have a calm face to look at for ages.

The calm face of the gentle  ripple of waves at sunrise
