Photo-Heart Connection: January

The countryside is my favourite place to be.
I love the sweet smell, the open air
and being able to see the sky and the fields 
unhindered by city buildings.

Recently, when I was out walking in the country after rain,
I noticed how beautiful the puddles were with their mesmerizing reflections.
The wind was blowing gently and creating ripples on the surface of the water,
breaking up the reflections and creating abstract images.

I felt an immediate connection to these watery images
I could feel Nature's vibrations tingling with aliveness
and waking up every sense in my whole being.

Abstracts!
Who would have thought they could touch me so?
They possess an art form all of their own
and allow me to step into another dimension
like a breath of fresh air!

  5. Beautiful! Isn't it fascinating what happens to catch our eyes! I have begun to really appreciate and enjoy abstract images. This one has such pretty motion to it! It almost looks like I'm looking through rippled glass.

  13. Love this photo the blues, the ripples. You've given yourself a gift to embrace abstracts. I too find that puddles have become canvases I'd never noted until the last couple years.
    Nicely seen and captured, and considered.

  17. Abstracts convey emotion differently, don't they? I love it! I loved your words: "I could feel Nature's vibrations tingling with aliveness and waking up every sense in my whole being." This resonates with me. I can feel what you felt, through image and words. Thank you for sharing in the Photo-Heart Connection. Nice to see you here!
