A source of life. A place of recreation. A calming presence, but also a destructive force. We have different relationships to and stories about water: how it has saved or defeated us. How will you interpret this theme? How can you tell a story with water? In your street shot, you established a scene with a background, foreground and a focal point within it. Apply this thinking to your water shot! After you snap your picture, rotate your camera and take a second shot from the other orientation — horizontally if you first took the picture vertically, and vice versa.
I view water as cleansing and therapeutic. Washing away all the things that keep us bound and sad. Making us “new” again.
In focusing on “orientation,” I noticed how the light changed in each picture. Even the rain looks different. I have my personal favorite of the two. How about you? Which one do you like?
Finally, I decided to add this photo to the mix. It sorta spoke to me. Peace and calm after the storm.
