Thursday’s Special: Water

Water, the world’s most valuable resource, should not be taken for granted.


Again, you have less than a week to come up with some water shots. Leave me the links to your posts with entries for this challenge, please. Happy Thursday!



NOTE for new visitors: This is a once a week photo challenge. For further details please visit Scheduled Challenges page and Thursday’s Special page.

Photography 101: Water

Having one of the most advanced waterway systems in Europe, the medieval Bologna grew into the fifth largest city in the 13th century Europe and into the main textile centre of Italy.

Water canals can still be seen today surrounding the narrow alleys of this enthralling town.

The host of #photo101 project Cheri Lucas suggested we should turn the camera both horizontally and vertically while shooting to get both landscape and portrait views of the same scene. I am happy to oblige and post two different views of Moline canal in Bologna.



This is my interpretation of water for today. I look forward to seeing your entries. A word of warning for tomorrow: this month I will be combining my Thursday’s Special with Photo 101 assignments, which will economize my posting process and maybe bring more advertising to my main event 😀

A Multi-coloured Dream

Puzzled by my recurring dream of water and boats I did some Internet search for a possible interpretation.

Here is what they have told me: “To dream that you are in or see a boat signifies your ability to cope with and express your emotions. To dream that you are in a rowboat symbolizes hard work and perseverance. You are coping with your problems and emotions in your own way and at your own pace. Consider the condition of the water…”

Since the water surface is calm, I guess I am facing some smooth sailing, and as there are several boats in the picture I think I should need some company on my way…;)

The theme of this post is a dream and an interpretation of it, but I also entered it for Marianne’s multicoloured challenge. On the following link you can find out more about her CBBH monthly photo challenge

According to the propositions of the challenge I should mention two blogs I have commented on recently… It is my great pleasure to introduce you to Patti of nylondaze , and Stephen of stephenkellycreative blog. Patti will take you for a walk in the streets of NY, and Stephen will show you a lot of Frisco and teach you about art among other things. I enjoy both Patti’s and Stephen’s photography immensely.
