Precious Water

Wednesday, August 16 | |

Kodak CX7430, aperture at f4.59, shutter speed at 1/90 sec., focal length of 102mm, fill-flash, ISO 80

They say you only appreciate the value of some things when you need it or when it's gone. On a hot, humid, and febrile day, nothing refreshes more than the sight and feel of pure water.

Ils disent que vous appréciez seulement la valeur de quelques choses quand vous avez besoin de elle ou quand elle a disparu. Un jour chaud, humide, et fébrile, rien ne régénère plus que la vue et la sensation de l'eau pure.

Nice effect on the water. It almost look like ice!

The water has been captured beautifully - I agree with Sidney that it looks like ice.

L'eau c'est la vie, et un homme politique français a dit [au siècle dernier !] que les guerres se feraient pour avoir l'eau.
On voit ce qui se passe au Moyen Orient.
Cette eau qui coule de ce beau robinet doit être très rafraîchissante.

Makes feel really thirsty now

bonne idée, belle phot... dommage qu'on ne voit pas tout le robinet qui a une belle couleur et une belle texture, je crois que ça aurait donné plus de force à la photo. mais c'est déjà très bien fait comme ça!

It is really refreshing! Look at those two drops.

psyche said...

wow! the combination of gold with the dense-soft look of water really has an effect :) nice!

Emer said...

SID and JANE: I noticed that, too. With rapid flash and running water, you can get that "ice-effect."

CERGIE: Je n'ai pas su cela, mon ami. J'ai pensé que c'était seulement pétrole, sel, et café qui peut faire des guerres.

GOPALA: Have a drink, then. :)

MONCEF: Merci ! J'essayerai votre suggestion la fois prochaine. :)

IPANEMA: There are 3 drops, my friend. :)

PSYCHE: Nice description. Thanks! :)
