Looking at my dwindling stash of photographs,
I noticed this weekend
that I could [loosely] recreate the four elements.
So here goes!!
"The Essence of Green"
the soil from which all things grow and prosper;
where you find minerals, metals, vegetation
and creatures big and small wandering around.
You may find it odd that I made this a black-and-white version,
but I personally wanted to focus here on the diversity of shapes and sizes.
this rare combination that allows life [as we know it] on this planet.
The wind, the clouds, an ever changing skyscape,
hovering above our heads
and reminding us just how little we are actually...
the source of life,
be it through rain or lakes and rivers,
oceans containing a whole world in themselves.
Water in its many shapes.
This picture was taken at the Old Port
as the St Lawrence River just speeds away,
in a hurry to meet the Atlantic which is far away [for us]
a source of utter destruction but also of renewal,
be it volcanoes or thunderbolts.
Fire can also be man-made...
Hence the ICM shot here of fire trucks that showed up just past midnight recently,
awaking me rudely and wondering if it was pertinent for me
to grab the cats and rush downstairs,
in the rain...
There you have it,
a tiny piece of this blue planet.
One so familiar to me,
I just keep on discovering little details about it.
