Just At The Edge

Water Hanging on The Edge Before Breaking Over

I’m sticking with words about pictures today because if I were to give you other words, they’d probably be ugly and frustrated as that is very much the mood I’m in today.

As for the words about pictures, I took a ridiculous number of photos of water while I was away. Moving, reflecting, tiny waves breaking, splashes and just whatever I could try to get while I had it in front of me. This is one of many favorites from the trip because of the point in time I managed to capture this one. It is the moment before the little wave falls completely over the edge of the rock. I have so many in this sequence, both before and after, I could probably turn it into a video, but this one stood out for me. I’m certain I’ll have more water pics in the days to come, but this one seemed really fitting for today, that feeling of hanging on the edge.

I am a slightly sane artist, amateur photographer, book addict, wife, mom and raging introvert. I have more hobbies than I can count, so it is beyond shocking that I manage to find time to do any of them, let alone most of them and still have time to do anything else. Of all the talents I claim, writing wasn’t one of them until my muse dropped the idea for a book on my head.

  1. Water has calming qualities – I noticed this too when I took the dog down to the lake. No matter when we go to the shores of Lake Ontario, the water has different, um, moods which often helps to calm my own. Like yesterday afternoon the lake was very calm, with teeny tiny ripples of water at the edge. The day prior, there was a small surf which the dog loves, trying to bite into the waves as if they were solid. There are always different shades of blues and greens and greys that tend to calm me when I’m upset. And, during stormier weather, the lake can take on an anger-like tone, as if it tries to commiserate with me. 🙂

    So I get it, is what I’m saying.

    1. I really wish I had regular access to a body of water like this. I’m not a fan of being on it or in it, but I absolutely love to just sit and observe it. I love where we live for other reasons, but this is the one thing I really wish we had different. It doesn’t help that I’m the only one in the family that feels this way.
