the shape of water

Remembering that I bought my 30mm lens for close-ups and so with time on my hands, I pointed the camera at water spouts in a miniature fountain.

 water should not be flat water should not be smooth water should not be empty water should not have a shape there is no shape of water

  1. So soothing to look at these images while we bake here in Shropshire. Water is such a paradoxical element – we say ‘weak as water’ and yet it is the most powerful natural force.Here you have also captured its magic looks.

    1. the image shapes brought to mind ‘the glass menagerie’ & Laura with her precious collection but as you say water is powerful (& glass is brittle)

      “Water is fluid, soft, and yielding. But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield. As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft, and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard. This is another paradox: what is soft is strong.”

      p.s. yes it is hot even here today!

  2. This is a really interesting post because I’m finding the images repellent . . . and I would never have expected to find any image of water repellent. Funny what photography can do1

      1. That’s exactly it. It’s like glass turning into jelly. Sort of science fictiony. Fascinating.
