The World Above, the World Below

Our very favorite local park was unharmed by the Bitch Irene. Its stately trees lost some twigs, a few branches, but still stood tall and proud after the hurricane. The threadlike Mill River swelled  and overflowed its banks, but ebbed within a day or two. Once again, at its widest point near the pavilion by the children’s water park, the river was calm and peaceful, its mirrored surface transforming the world above into the world below.

    Isn’t it amazing how nature can destroy with one hand but set everything back to an even keel the next. Fabulous photo!

      Extreme example: blue skies and gentle breezes playing over the remains of the day before’s tornado.
      Powerful, yeah! Thanks for the kind word about the photo, Julia —

    There is beauty in reflection, as you show with your photo, as you demonstrated with your paintings in your Touch2Touch post (reflections of objects in your mind’s eye). We seek our own reflections for clues about how we appear to others, we capture mirrored memories with cameras, we call it reflection when we think back on something. As long as we don’t take reflections for the real thing, they serve to enhance our perceptions and amaze us with their detail, don’t they?

    I like thinking about the ever moving water reflecting the ever present landscape…

      As always, Pauline, you take my breath away with your power of observation, both of seeing, and of expressing.
