{June 2, 2011}   Weekly Photo Challenge:WATER

I feel like I have used all the pics already on my computer that were of water…during the Ocean theme and then again for the Lights theme where I used a sunset on the lake. So….I went searching through other photos to find some more suitable water pictures since I don’t spend that much time by water, other than the bathroom and kitchen variety.

Here are some OLD photos I found that I have taken of Water. I hope you enjoy!

My favorite photo I found....taken in Wales in 2001

This photo reminds me of some sort of gothic painting almost….I just love the somber mood of it. Not sure why I never uploaded it to my computer before!

The Infamous Shamu from Sea World San Antonio!

Dolphins soaring above the water.....

....and a niece submerged under it

A seal out for a relaxing swim at the Houston Zoo

A turtle posing for my camera

Petting and feeding the dolphins as they swim through the water

Hope you enjoyed the photos I picked this week. Is your favorite the same as the one I picked or do you like a different one better? I love hearing your opinions!

SPIRIT SONG OVER THE WATERS. by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
THE soul of man
Resembleth water:
From heaven it cometh,
To heaven it soareth.
And then again
To earth descendeth,
Changing ever.Down from the lofty
Rocky wall
Streams the bright flood,
Then spreadeth gently
In cloudy billows
O’er the smooth rock,
And welcomed kindly,
Veiling, on roams it,
Soft murmuring,
Tow’rd the abyss.Cliffs projecting
Oppose its progress,–
Angrily foams it
Down to the bottom,
Step by step.

Now, in flat channel,
Through the meadowland steals it,
And in the polish’d lake
Each constellation
Joyously peepeth.

Wind is the loving
Wooer of waters;
Wind blends together
Billows all-foaming.

Spirit of man,
Thou art like unto water!
Fortune of man,
Thou art like unto wind!

I love your selection and especially the one on Shamu… 🙂

Thanks! Shamu is pretty awesome but I don’t think I would ever be able to get close to him like the trainers……the size of a killer whale is amazing but scary to me!

I like the turtle the best 🙂

The turtle’s a cutie, huh? I loved how it was looking right at me. 🙂

I hope your niece wasn’t trying to swim under water with Shamu! 😉
I love that photo from Wales too.

Nope, that photo was taken at one of her birthday parties many years ago when everyone went swimming and she had underwater disposable cameras
