Water Subjects – Part I
Thinking about what types of subjects I am attracted too I would certainly need to include water near the top of my list. I have always loved photographing beside the water whether it’s a stream, lake, waterfall or ocean and I seek out scenes that include water. A moon child, I was born under one of the three waters signs of the zodiac but I don’t think I’m a believer in all of that! I’m sure many other photographers share this fascination with me. Water possesses many symbolic meanings in religion, art, literature and dreams. Some of the most common are: life, purity, cleansing and rebirth. In some cultures water is seen as a symbol of versatility because it can take on many forms. Influenced by the moon, water flows, falls, waves, can be liquid, can freeze or become steam … and creates wonderful photographic subjects! The images here were captured this fall in the Delaware Water Gap.
