Watching The River Flow

In nature.

No experiments today. No messing around. No disco. No party.

Just a pure photograph. A new photograph that I made by accident. That happens sometimes. I was walking to one place when my phone rang and a voice came through the line that said, “Take a picture, you fool.”

Not really, but I stopped walking to talk to the voice on the line. While I was looking around this picture appeared to me. It’s simple. It’s direct. It’s about nature and about water. Something we have too much of. In our two states. Lots of water.

I used to live in the west.

The west is getting to be bone dry. Lakes are dropping down to very little water. Rivers too. Stuff is surfacing. Bodies. Sunken boats. Whole towns. Cars. Your lost houseboat.

Not only in the Western United States, but in Europe too. Roman roads are resurfacing. In Spain, a whole town resurfaced. In Germany, old Nazi warships are starting to appear. That’s very nasty because most of them still have live munitions on board.

You know what that means if people aren’t careful around them.


World War II strikes again.

Wowie Zowie.

When I accidentally made the picture I really hadn’t thought of all that. It just came up.

From nowhere.

Or, everywhere.
