WPC: Dialogue

Our community is surrounded on most sides by water, and also holds several natural ponds, springs, and an ancient swimming pool.

As water divides us, so it also brings us together.

This series of photos speaks to light, water, inclusion, exclusion, and the constancy of change.

It is a snapshot of my walk around the community yesterday evening, between dinner time and sunset.

A dialogue about the end of summer, the beginning of autumn, and the deeply satisfying beauty of nature in all of her guises.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dialogue

 

“Dialogue is an engaging conversational exchange.

When it comes to photography, dialogue can be perceived as a consensual interaction between two images.

Placed next to each other, each photograph opens up to meanings that weren’t there when viewed alone.

Each composition reveals the photographer’s specific sensitivity to certain content or visual elements.”

  3. I walk every weekday morning in a nearby park that looks much like this. I love seeing the daily and seasonal changes and absorbing the peace.

    • Dear Janet, It is great for grounding and keeping in touch with what is going on around you. I always meet friends along the way, and the peace and enjoyment of it is beyond measure. It is good to know that you have such a place to walk each day, too. Thank you for visiting Forest Garden today. Best wishes, WG

  4. Beautiful photos – I especially love the first one with the heron and the grass-rimmed, still water. You’ve captured the cusp of seasonal change.

  5. You show her guises well, WG. 🙂 There will be no reading between her leggy lines.
    Who wood dare?!!! “Knot I,” says the loosely-rooted one. “Her ways weave way beyond my wonder.”

    Have a great holiday weekend! Peace, luvz, and hugz! Keith

    • Hear! Hear! Beautifully expressed, Keith. Thank you for the kind words and good wishes. I hope you will thoroughly enjoy your days off. Piece, luvz, and hugz back to you. May all of your roots find nourishment in the days ahead. WG
