Friday Shoot-out: Water assignment

I love Water's versatility. Sometimes it is quiet, tranquil, crystal clear and becomes a big canvas to take in whatever reflection falling on it. The other time, it dances and is so full of energy, gushing down in form of rains or waterfall, or splashing against the seashores and producing nice rhythms.

I did not go out much after work to snap photos for this week assignment. So most of the photos are pulled from my old photo archive.


A pour in the late afternoon.



Strings of Beads/pearls made of water.



Water makes a nice filter to camera too.



My favourite water - lemonade.



Water is home to dugongs. These two are having whispers in their home sweet home.


One of the lily ponds in Singapore Botanic Garden.



The swan and duck have a vast mirror for themselves to admire their own elegance and beauty.


Fountain in Raffles Hotel. An essential element in this colonial setting.


I personally like this shot a lot because of this little curious girl behind the man-made waterfall which is a big wonder to her.


Tanah Lot in Bali. See how beautifully the water embraces the site for the old temple.


Our rippled shadows on the sand.


Merlion still working at night.


Pond outside Esplanade.


Cooling off and playing in the water.


Salad ingredients being refreshed by the clean water...;)

Wonderful variety for the eye and mind. I did like the little wide eyed girl a lot and shooting the whateveritwas through the rain splattered glass made me think I'd like to go play with that idea.

We could use more rain, it's simply too hot nowadays.

I see some familiar places here and love every photos.

All of your photos were so beautiful! As is Singapore. I simply can't pick out a favorite. Though I agree that the little girl and the waterfall was fantastic. :)

I particularly like the merlion and your shadow casting down on beach.
These really made a great water set. Hope to see more next week.
Have a fruitful weekend Owl Eng:)

A post full of wonder. Water is such a integrator.

The connections from rain, ocean, the tap and how are whole world needs it is captured quite nicely in your post.

I have got to get to Bali- it looks so mystical.
