Carmi's challenge this week is MOVEMENT

This is a fairly conventional picture of movement - but it was rather funny to watch, as the Sailing Club here teach beginners, and more than one falls in the lake! It is a very popular spot too, as there are hundreds of water fowl there, including dozens of swans and greedy ducks. The Council (or whoever) has made a rough parking spot into a hard standing, and a proper pedestrian bit for duck feeders and small children to watch in safety.

On the other hand, this is not a very interesting photo until you know that is a tap running into soapsuds in the sunk! I had to draw running water for an Art Course I was doing on-line a while ago, and not being able to get out carrying all my materials, paper etc., I decided I could make running water quite nicely at home! And I used it for photographic purposes too.

I feel it should be called "HAVE YOU WASHED YOUR HANDS?"

STOP PRESS - I took another one this afternoon. He was just about to land, but still moving!

I would like your second photo but you have reminded me it's my turn to wash up. Despite that, it's great. Water in any form always seems to throw up photographic opportunities.

Such an interesting shot of the water and suds - and the sailing one is beautiful too. Water - my favourite stuff :)

Oh they are both great, but the last one, especially the tones of the colors, really heavy on the movement of the water spray! Great stuff, and the first photo reminds me of happy days on the water!

Nice photos and a delightful interpretation of the theme. In particuliar I like the running water.

That water faucet one is really good!
