Description: Candid photo of a small child playing in wonder at a water wall. . . . This shot brings me to a threshold. When I took it, I found myself watching this beautiful child lost in play with the water, full of wonder...unconscious of himself....the moment took me back to a memory, at this same gallery water wall 43 years earlier on its opening... when I as a child played in exactly the same way.... for me this shot is one about synchronicity, cycles and constant change.

The abstract quality that is created here is very effective and the way the light focuses our attention on the subject, as if they are looking to receive something from above.

Your description is a compliment with the photograph, a sweet story about your childhood. Synchronicity is always a delightful experience- In my mind when this happens it's for the best of life...those small moments.

ah, if i were a little less jaded i would have a tear forming from this scene. It brings to me a calm quiet of innocence. remembering a time when the world held so much that was fresh and new. things could never be stale, and running around outside within a 25 ft radius was a more than ample activity of contention. but no, now we all have our master degrees so that we can focus on "more important" specific things in one field of research and drive ourselves to the grave thinking, its a small small world. this girl, the twinkle in her eye says that she knows no bounds of universal laws. her communion with the water is reminiscent of vitality, or more specifically the quality of life and (exponentially paired) its future potential for shaping the universe.
Posted by rodeorose on August 09, 2012
Dustin such a comments dispels the jadedness and brings wide smiles to this ol' gal- thanks o much ...really :)))
Posted by dustineparr on August 09, 2012
no problem, my dear. when i see good work, i feel it is imperative to let the creator know such.
