Emotions open us up to fullness of life or to the brink of despair. It is certainly something which is “Changing and/or Changeable”. This week you may see in the result of my captures that something has happened which positively impacted my changing emotions, regardless of the complexities the innuendo described in this tale brings. If you know me though I suggest you read the words which I purposefully limited among the bountiful photos.
She was the water.
I was the dried out tree stump;
she invigorated me♥
And she made me aware of my own secret places*
(*inside the hollow stump above)♥
There is always one who stands out – she is such a one♥
I DO NOT REGRET MY LOVE AFFAIR WITH DOOR-DE-KRAAL DAM
All these photos were taken since full moon (25 September) this year at the dam. Door de Kraal dam is 2 km from my place of employment and 5 km from my home in the Northern suburbs of Cape Town. All the bulbs grow wild. Truly infatuated I went there repeatedly before work, and after work, a few days in a row. And yes I did only discover it as a photography destination in the past month, despite driving and cycling past there numerous times in the last 15 years.
In the unlikely event of the cabin depressurizing or you not getting my tale just to reiterate – this is a only a metaphoric love story (figment of my imagination). But I have developed a love for photography and imagery and it does have the ability to influence me positively.
The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
Psalm 19: 1-4
