 I have lots of photographs which reveal moments of floating, whether it be literally or figuratively.  I have many photographs of clouds in the sky.  I am always taking them – wanting to capture the ‘never to be seen moment again’ moment.   The photo I chose for this week takes both the literal and figurative into account, as well as the absurd and sadness which has, unfortunately become a common site in today’s society and our bodies of water.

Jordan took this photo last year, as a result of a class assignment.  He snapped a few wide angled shots which revealed more of the area around the bottle and this one, which was used for a film.  Water was the assigned topic and I suppose, you can figure out the ‘angle’ in which the film explored this very wet topic. {By the way, the shadows under the water are little fish.}

Weekly Photo Challenge – Depth

My aspiring movie maker/Oscar-winning hopeful son attends SIU.  Last year with the aid of some very sophisticated film equipment (compliments of the University), he took several photos on campus.  What you see above is the lake situated in the center of the campus itself.   I was under the impression the pylons were ‘once upon a time’ parts of a pier, but they are actually a marker of some sort.  Jordan told me that he had to lie on his stomach, with his chin on the ground in which to capture the shot.

What else can I say except, “Hollywood… here he comes!

The trunk of this tree reminds me of a long, gracefully flowing train on a formal ball gown – like a lady waiting for her escort to gracefully sweep her across the dance floor…and waltz the night away…
